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.  

                                ITER - a 500 MW fusion plant under construction

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.
