Major next steps proposed for fusion energy based on the spherical tokamak design (Nuclear Fusion)

By John Greenwald, Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory Among the top puzzles in the development of fusion energy is the best shape for the magnetic facility — or “bottle” — that will provide the next steps in the development of fusion reactors. Leading candidates include spherical tokamaks, compact machines that are shaped like cored apples, compared … Continue reading Major next steps proposed for fusion energy based on the spherical tokamak design (Nuclear Fusion)
