title cover Fusion: The Energy of the Universe

Former CCFE scientists Gary McCracken and Peter Stott have updated their book Fusion: The Energy of the Universe, originally published in 2005. The book is an essential reference title on the subject of fusion research and covers the basic principles of fusion energy from its history to the present day.

The new edition includes a brand new chapter on ITER. A second new chapter about inertial confinement programs also discusses the National Ignition Facility (NIF, US), Laser Mégajoule (LMJ, France), Fast Ignition Realization EXperiment (FIREX, Japan), and the High Power laser Energy Research facility (HiPER, proposed, Europe). The book’s chapter on fusion power plants has been expanded and now includes descriptions of the projected designs of the demonstration fusion power plant DEMO and the Laser Initial Fusion Energy project, LIFE.
