This paper presents examples from work in developing the technology needed for fusion. The purpose is to illustrate how our research ranges from very basic investigations to more directed applications. The paper draws primarily from work by others on the critical goals of extracting heat in a useful way from a fusion reactor and producing and handling tritium as a self-sufficient fuel.
