With increasing energy demands and a limited supply of fossil fuels, the need for efficient, clean, and sustainable energy sources grows ever more pressing. Nuclear fusion – the process from which stars like the Sun derive their energy – holds the potential to help address this challenge. To mimic this process on earth, experimental fusion devices seek to confine and heat gas to millions of degrees (creating a fusion plasma). Learning how such plasmas behave is a crucial step towards realizing fusion as a sustainable energy source. At the Plasma Physics and Fusion Energy (PPFE) section at DTU Physics, we are exploring this issue, focusing on three areas of high priority on the way towards a working fusion power plant.
