“Progress in Nuclear Fusion: Hope or Hype?”

On Dec. 13, the Department of Energy announced “fusion ignition,” a milestone in reproducing the power of the sun in the laboratory and on the road to a possible source of abundant clean energy. 

The Department of Physics will explore this topic during a talk Thursday, March 23, from 4 to 5 p.m. in Rockefeller Building, Room 301, and via Zoom.

Cyrus Taylor, the Albert A. Michelson Professor in Physics, and Philip Taylor, professor emeritus of physics, will discuss progress in nuclear fusion and disentangle hope from hype.
