Major changes were afoot for EFDA ten years ago, as ten countries signed a treaty to join the European Union.
In the fifties it seemed nearly impossible, but we are on the brink of creating the conditions for fusion power
At the heart of deuterium-tritium fusion is the neutron. Each fusion event produces neutrons with an enormous amount of energy – 14.1 megaelectron volts. This is a million times more energy than is produced by burning coal, and manifests itself in the speed of the neutrons, which leave the reaction [...]
JET experiments will help ITER achieve a plasma world record.
The world of fusion seems a million miles away from every day life
Modelling of the future global energy mix shows that fusion has a big role to play.
ITER will be 2150 times more efficient than the sun.
A super-hot plasma needs a super-alloy
In 81374 pulses at JET we have learnt a lot!
The pressure inside JET is 50 milllion times less than the atmosphere around us.
