Nuclear fusion has long been seen as the ultimate sustainable energy source, with the capability of producing large amounts of clean energy from a near inexhaustible fuel source. However, there are several technical difficulties in developing a reactor which can produce energy from nuclear fusion. In this talk I will give a brief introduction to magnetic confinement fusion, an overview of current research activities and an explanation of the materials challenges involved in fusion reactors.

This talk is part of the Surfaces, Microstructure and Fracture Group series.
