Event details

Nuclear Physics Masterclass

Join Dr. Kate Lancaster and Dr. Ed Pickering to bring nuclear fusion, the process that powers the stars, down to Earth. Kate is an experimental plasma physicist at the University of York. In the webinar, she'll explore how fusion energy could shape the clean energy landscape of the future. Ed is a senior lecturer in material science at the University of Manchester. In the webinar, he will explore how fusion reactors are built to withstand the extremes of temperature needed to make fusion happen here on Earth.

This webinar can be attended independently but is also part of a Nuclear Physics Masterclass. Find out more and register for the full masterclass at
