This article is from the Fusion FAQ, by Robert F. Heeter firstname.lastname@example.org with numerous contributions by others.
* Much of the public-domain fusion info is now available
via WWW: At this time, it appears that most of the
major U.S. fusion research labs have information available
on the Web, and the amount of available information is
growing rapidly. Available materials include basic
fusion information, all sorts of pictures, information
about each lab's research projects, and more.
* Navigating the Web is a little hard to explain, but for fusion,
the easiest way to start is to go to the Department of Energy's
Office of Fusion Energy page. (Address given below.) From here,
you can (I think) move upwards within DOE to the Office of
Energy Research, or downwards to many of the fusion labs.
Alternatively, once you know the "URL" addresses of a lab's WWW
documents, you can open them up directly with the "Open URL"

(Apologies to those labs I left off this list; I figured this
would give anyone interested a decent start, and then the rest
of the labs are easy to get to.)
