IAP Seminars

Meet the next generation of fusion scientists, and learn what they are doing at MIT to make this game-changing technology a viable carbon-free energy source.

For over 45 years MIT’s Plasma Science and Fusion Center (PSFC) has been exploring nuclear fusion as a source of energy through a series of tokamaks, devices that use magnets to confine hot plasma in a donut-shaped chamber. This has culminated recently in the design and testing of revolutionary superconducting magnets for SPARC, a compact tokamak on track to provide a faster, less expensive path to practical fusion energy.

Hosted at the Sala de Puerto Rico, the IAP Plasma Science and Fusion Center Showcase features a competitive poster session, and lightning talks on key areas of plasma research. And lunch!

11am – Poster Session
12pm – Lunch and Lightning Talks

Get to know the people and the projects of the PSFC.  Students are eager to chat about research opportunities. Attendees may even win a prize or two.
