Pioneering Clean Energy Solutions
A California-based company, BLF was founded in 2022 by Shuji Nakamura, Ph.D., 2014 Nobel Laureate in Physics and Professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara Hiroaki Ohta, Ph.D., General Partner of Waseda University Ventures (WUV), and Richard Ogawa, a Silicon Valley-based attorney.
With over 200 claims in patent applications, BLF has developed a proprietary novel laser fusion technology capable of achieving the world’s first fusion for energy generation for power grids. BLF’s laser technology enables Mega Joule pulse energy laser with a fast repetition rate to achieve commercial fusion. BLF plans to complete its first prototype in 2025 and demonstrate a commercial-ready fusion reactor by 2030.
BLF plans to adopt a safe hydrogen-boron fuel called “HB11” for sustainable and environmentally friendly operations. The HB11 fuel is not radioactive, is free from harmful neutrons, yields safe helium elements, and is a naturally abundant mineral.
“HB11 is the perfect fuel for fusion and has no harmful neutron or tritium elements, as conventional fusion technologies. We are pleased to be working with our group of the world’s top scientists and experts not only to ignite a fusion reaction with HB11 but maintain the reaction to create clean, renewable energy,” said Hiroaki Ohta, CTO of Blue Laser Fusion, Inc.
“We are delighted with the support from our investors and our funding. Blue Laser Fusion, Inc. has the best fusion technology, in my view, to achieve commercial fusion by 2030. I am so excited about our opportunity and the support,” said Shuji Nakamura, President and CEO of Blue Laser Fusion, Inc. “I have always looked for ways to help change the world and save our planet from carbon.”
With the success of raising the Series Seed round funding, BLF will expand its R&D operation in the Santa Barbara area as well as Tokyo to develop its prototype commercial reactor.
"We are delighted to participate with the impressive and differentiated team of successful industry leaders that Blue Laser Fusion, Inc. has assembled. We look forward to supporting the BLF team as they continue to build their business through innovation and dedication."
