The Kavli prize lecture 2019 given by Professor Ian Chapman.

The imperative to address climate change is only escalating. Fusion – the process that powers the Sun – offers the potential for carbon-free, effectively limitless, continuous electricity, if only it can be harnessed here on Earth.

Professor Ian Chapman and his colleagues are working to make fusion power a reality, and with the advent of ITER, the largest science experiment humankind has ever undertaken, they hope to demonstrate fusion power on a commercial scale.

The UK, as one of the world leaders in fusion, is embarking on the design of a compact fusion reactor to follow ITER which aims to drive down the scale and cost of fusion power, which Professor Chapman will explain and explore during his prize lecture.

The prize lecture will be webcast live and the video recording of the event will be available shortly after the event.

This event was originally scheduled for 29 April 2020.
