Chiel Ham

Hi there, I'm Chiel.

I am a physics student at the Technical University of Eindhoven and I'm currently finishing my education by doing my graduation project in the Fusion group.

The goal of my project is to measure the electric field in the Fusor, thé experiment of our group.

In this experiment high voltages are used to accelerate particles to high velocities. At these velocities these particles are able to collide and fuse together, generating energy - the goal of Fusion. Knowing the electric field provides insight about these velocities and allows for better tuning of the device.
