JET achieves record result: Exploring Fusion Energy

JET’s record performance and the search for fusion energy

Andrew Glester, host of the Physics World Stories podcast speaks with two UK Atomic Energy Authority engineers to find out more about this new development. Leah Morgan, a physicist-turned-engineer explains why JET’s recent success is great news for the ITER project – a larger experimental fusion reactor currently under construction in Cadarache, France. Helena Livesey, a mechanical design engineer, discusses the importance of robotics in accessing equipment inside the tokamak device.
