Join Professor of Experimental Physics Piero Martin from the Department of Physics and Astronomy G. Galilei, University of Padova (Italy), the Mathematical Sciences Institute, Institute of Climate, Energy and Disaster Solutions and the Italian Embassy in Canberra for a public lecture at the Australia National University.
Light refreshments will be served afterwards.
Controlled thermonuclear magnetic fusion of light nuclei will be a player in a future mix of sustainable energy sources. A worldwide scientific and technology program is in place to achieve energy production through fusion, through the ITER program. Italy is a major player in that program and is presently building the Divertor Tokamak Test facility (DTT), a new advanced experiment which will address key scientific problems for fusion.
The talk will review the major scientific challenges to be addressed to achieve the production of electricity from fusion and will describe the main directions of the international efforts.
A description of the technical features and of the science program of the new DTT Italian experiment will be provided.
