U.K., South Korea form new clean energy partnership
The United Kingdom has announced a new partnership with South Korea to accelerate the clean energy transition by strengthening cooperation on low-carbon technologies, domestic climate policies, and civil nuclear energy.
Signed November 22 in London by British energy security and net zero secretary Claire Coutinho and South Korean minister for trade, industry, and energy Moon Kyu Bang, the partnership promotes U.K.-South Korean business collaboration, addressing barriers to trade and encouraging mutual development of the two nations’ energy sectors.

Plasma tomography consists of reconstructing a two-dimensional radiation profile of a poloidal cross section of a fusion device based on line-integrated measurements along several lines of sight. The reconstruction process is computationally intensive, and in practice, only a few reconstructions are usually computed per pulse. In this work, we trained a deep neural network based on a large collection of sample tomograms that have been produced at JET over several years. Once trained, the network is able to reproduce those results with high accuracy. More importantly, it can compute all the tomographic reconstructions for a given pulse in just a few seconds. This makes it possible to visualize several phenomena—such as plasma heating, disruptions, and impurity transport—over the course of the entire pulse.
