Provide energy from fusion

Researchers at UC San Diego and San Diego-based General Atomics have reported an improved control method for a type of nuclear fusion technology that confines a cloud of ionized hydrogen in a doughnut-shaped machine called a tokamak.

UC San Diego's Center for Energy Research has several programs focused on creating efficient energy sources, including next generation fusion solutions. One project CER scientists are working on is PISCES, which focuses on fundamental and applied research in the field of boundary plasma science for fusion applications. Some of the research for PISCES will be used to create solutions for ITER, the International Thermonucklear Experimental Reactor, a joint research project between the United States, the European Union, Japan, Russia, China and South Korea. ITER will be the first fusion experiment to produce long pulses of energy released on a significant scale.
