Abstract

Nuclear fusion has the potential to become an important energy source in the future, so we propose a virtual physics experience for learning about nuclear fusion and plasma physics with an interactive fusion experiment, and then placing the user inside the experiment and letting them run and control this. Implemented using Unreal Engine 4, users can manipulate parameters of the experiment in real-time with immediate visual results in the form of the shape and colour glow of the virtual plasma, resembling that of a real plasma.
