Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to see possibilities and risks of existing and working nuclear energy facilities and will have knowlede about future nuclear energy systems. They will be able to discuss and estimate such faclilties and may be able to step into  and work on different scientific details of such systems. Primary this lectures are about fusion technologies and the ways to get to working systems, but also about some other future technologies such as transmutation.

Subject of course

Features of fast reactors, alternative nuclear fuels, fusion systems with magnetic and inertial confinement, muon-fusion, plasma focus, nuclear transmution, nuclear energy systems in space, nuclear alternatives for energy production.
