What is Fusion technology?

Fusion technology refers to the scientific and engineering disciplines associated with harnessing nuclear fusion as a potential energy source. Nuclear fusion is a process in which two light atomic nuclei combine to form a heavier nucleus, releasing a significant amount of energy. This process is the same one that powers the sun.
