Marianne Royer - intership at EPFL
My internship took place in a laboratory belonging to the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) called the Swiss Plasma Center (SPC). The main purpose of the SPC is to make ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) a success. Then, the following aim is to exploit the results obtained with ITER for use in DEMO (DEMOnstration power plant). ITER will prove that fusion can be made on Earth and DEMO will prove that fusion energy can be commercialized.
