ENERGY AND FUSION RESEARCH
Please note: the course has a new home page.
This introductory course will present the state of today's fusion research and provide insight into the physics and technology of fusion.
The development of fusion has now reached a state when it may be said that fusion power will indeed be realized. In this course, different solutions to "the greatest technological challenge ever pursued" will be presented.
As a background, we will discuss the energy problems that threat to become critical towards the mid-century, unless new energy sources are developed. Comparisons with the non-fossil energy sources that are known today will be made.
For a taste of fusion, you may take a look at these video lectures.
