Stellarators: twisty tokamaks that could be the future of fusion Theoretical Physics - From Outer Space to Plasma

    • Bildung

Georgia Acton introduces stellarators, discusses the features that distinguish them from tokamaks, highlight the challenges we currently face, and discusses how we might overcome them. Tokamaks have been at the forefront of fusion research for the last 50 years. Despite significant improvements over this time we have yet to produce a device that is a sustainable, reliable power source capable of net energy output. In this talk Georgia hopes to convince you that stellarators are the future of fusion, capable of overcoming many of the fundamental problems of tokamaks; crucially offering a reliable and continuously operating source of fusion power that can be used to power humanity forward.
