Head of IAU Plasma Physics Center Speaks on Nuclear Science Outlook

Saturday, August 6, 2016 - 14:31

Islamic Azad University and its Plasma Physics Research Center are striving to assist with the national quest for safe nuclear energy

In his interview with ISCA, the head of IAU Plasma Physics Research Center, Dr. Mahamoud Ghor'an Nevis, explained that energy is and will be among the world’s most pressing issues in the future therefore, mankind must search for sources of alternative energy, and that nuclear energy can supply 91% of the energy needed by the world.

International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER), one of the most ambitious energy projects in the world, is an international nuclear fusion research and engineering megaproject, which will be the world's largest magnetic confinement plasma physics experiment. As the Iranian pioneer of this technology IAU, is researching it as an effective method for exploiting nuclear energy.

Dr. Ghor'an-Nevis explained that the IAU Plasma Physics Research Center has a contract with the national Atomic Energy Organization since 8 years ago and "to close the gap with other countries regarding nuclear fusion,we corresponded with the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna in order to cooperate mutually with developed countries.” The IAU Science and Research branch now has two contractual agreements with the IAEA.

Dr. Ghoran Nevis stated that ITER is an international thermonuclear project in France which has been funded and run by 7 countries and that “after the implementation of Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), plans were suggested for joining S & R IAU to this project so we can send academic personnel and benefit from these countries’ know-how and experience.”

The head of IAU Plasma Physics Research Center declared that in line with the ITER project, they are planning to build a superconductor reactor in Iran which will be an important national project, “it is predicted that reactors will begin to produce plasma in 2020 and produce electricity in 2030.”
