Introduction: Approaches to Controlled Fusion and Role of Plasma-Wall Interactions

  • Folker Engelmann

Abstract

The various approaches to thermonuclear fusion and the underlying physics concepts are introduced, and the role and nature of plasma-wall interaction is discussed with emphasis on tokamaks and the reactor regime.
