Goal / Teaching Aim Physics and application of electro-static confinement, measurement of plasma parameters
Equipment A self-build fusor experiment
Experiment Design/construction/improvement and operation of a fusor experiment.
Fusion Relevance The Fusor has been suggested as a simple alternative to magnetic confinement. Although on fundamental grounds this claim cannot be supported, interesting physics aspects appear, some of which have their counterpart in tokamaks as well
