ITER: how digital technology is helping to prevent and control instabilities in nuclear fusion
Reading time: 1 min
Nuclear fusion, a technology whose reliability ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) aims to improve, holds the promise of clean, safe and virtually limitless energy. The main challenge is to confine the plasma in the vacuum chamber by detecting and predicting possible instabilities. To do this, physicists use artificial intelligence-driven modelling and simulation techniques to test potential control and detection methods.
