INTRODUCTION 1.1. Fusion en ergy Fusion energy is one of o nly a few truly lo ng-term e nergy options. Since its inception in th e 1950s, the vision of th e fusion energy research program ha s been to d evelop a viable means of h arnessing the virtually u nlimited e nergy stored in t he nuclei of l ight atoms – the primary f uel d euterium is present as one part i n 6 ,500 of a ll hydrogen. T his vision grew out o f t he recognition th at the immense power radiated by the sun is fuelled by nuclear fusion in it s hot c ore. Such high te mperatures are a prerequisite for driving si gnificant fusion reactions. The fa scinating fourth st ate of m atter at high te mperatures is known as plasma. It
