First Experiment of China's and the US's Nuclear Fusion Reactor Succeeds

Pub Date: 13-09-06 09:57 Source: www.cnanhui.org

Chinese and American scientists have successfully conducted their first joint test of two fusion reactors.

The experiment on the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST), a fusion energy reactor built by Hefei Institutes of Physical Science, Chinese Academy of Sciences, and the DIII-D, a tokamak machine developed by General Atomics in the USA, found that it's feasible for a tokamak fully relying on bootstrap current and non-induced current to run in a high-performance and steady way, Anhui Daily reported, citing the Hefei-based institute.

That experiment is part of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) project, which is intended to make the long-awaited transition from experimental studies of plasma physics to full-scale electricity-producing fusion power plants.

China is among the seven member entities running the ITER project, others being the European Union, India, Japan, Russia, South Korea and the United States.
