Culham Centre for Fusion Energy
Nuclear fusion, the process which powers the Sun and stars, has great potential as a future source of low carbon energy.
Culham Centre for Fusion Energy is home to the UK’s fusion research programme, most notably the MAST (Mega Amp Spherical Tokamak) experiment. It also hosts the world’s largest fusion facility, JET (Joint European Torus), which is operated for CCFE’s European partners under the European Fusion Development Agreement.
The work is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC – www.epsrc.ac.uk) and by the European Union under the EURATOM treaty.
