Project

Developing and Applying Core Energy from Nuclear Fusion Generation

Summary

Unlike nuclear fission reactions in conventional nuclear power plants, the nuclear fusion reaction that occurs in the center of the sun does not go out of control and generate CO2, so research and development are progressing across the globe for this eco-friendly energy source. The University of Tsukuba conducts basic research for developing divertor facilities essential for the realization of nuclear fusion reactors, using the world’s largest tandem mirror plasma confinement device , GAMMA 10/PDX to perform cutting-edge plasma physics research and application as well as human resource development through those endeavors, under the slogan, “Creating a sun on earth” . We are also progressing with research and development of gyrotrons, which are high-power oscillator of extremely high frequency for heating plasma, and while delivering world class performance, we have successfully generated the world’s largest plasma current in collaborative research with other academic research organizations through a research foundation classified as “bilateral collaborative research”.
