This image is of one of a number of experiments testing fusion which has the potential to provide an almost limitless source of energy; York physicists are developing ways to harness it.

Nuclear fusion, which powers the sun, would make an excellent energy source if we could recreate it on earth. Physicists at the University’s York Plasma Institute are helping to solve some of the problems, such as containing fusion fuel at 100 million degrees centigrade without touching it!
