Thermonuclear Fusion has been identified as one of the clean and long term future energy sources. Thermonuclear fusion uses extremely high temperatures with hot dense plasma of fusion fuel being confined for sufficiently long durations for net energy output. The major objectives of this advanced course are: (i) to highlight the advantages of Fusion over other energy resources, (ii) to understand the role of plasma heating and plasma confinement in achieving controlled thermonuclear fusion, and (iii) to provide in-depth coverage of magnetic fusion and inertial confinement fusion schemes. The major topics included are: World energy scenario; Fusion as clean and long-term energy source; Fundamentals of plasmas; Fundamentals of fusion process; Magnetic confinement schemes including magnetic mirror and tokamak; Inertial confinement fusion; and Alternative magnetic fusion device – plasma focus.
