The Fusion Energy Foundation (FEF) was an American non-profit research advocacy group dedicated to the advancement and promotion of conventional nuclear and fusion power, as well as lasers and particle beam weapons, in the United States and Canada. The foundation was formed in New York City, New York during 1974 by Lyndon LaRouche (U.S. Labor Party), Steven Bardwell, and others, relocating to Leesburg, Loudoun Co., Virginia a decade later in 1984; it remained active until 1986 when legal actions taken by U.S. Federal prosecutors forced it into bankruptcy and operations ceased.
