Fusion Energy: Plasma Materials Interactions Lab


Professor J.W. Davis

Prof. James Davis is an 1982 graduate of the Engineering Science program, majoring in Aerospace Engineering.

His research interests centre on the development of nuclear fusion as a future energy source. His laboratory work focuses on the use of low-energy  particle accelerators to simulate the effects of high-temperature plasmas  on the materials proposed for the first-wall armor inside magnetic confinement fusion reactors.

In addition to teaching first year calculus, he teaches a senior course titled: Introduction to Fusion Energy.
