Welcome to Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, the UK's national fusion research laboratory
Nuclear fusion, the process that powers the Sun, can play a big part in our carbon-free energy future. Culham is one of the world's leading fusion research laboratories. Our scientists and engineers are working with partners around the globe to develop fusion as a new source of clean energy for tomorrow's power stations.
Focus on...New Materials Research Facility at Culham
Seeing fusion materials on the nanoscale
Researchers are using a new lab at CCFE to examine materials to see the impact of neutrons on reactor components.
Meanwhile a Materials Research Facility is under construction at Culham for use by researchers from labs, universities and industry across the UK nuclear R&D community. It will open in 2015 as part of the National Nuclear User Facility.
