Nuclear engineer receives $3.6 million in grants to improve reactors

9/29/2020

In nuclear fusion reactors, the nuclei of atoms fuse to generate more energy than is consumed. This energy-producing plasma is roughly the temperature of the sun, which is powered by the same fusion energy principles. The sun, however, does not need to be confined in the way fusion plasma requires on Earth.
