Last part about particle trajectories in a plasma with magnetic field for today. With that we will be able to understand the configuration of a tokamak and how particles behave in its particular magnetic field.

To understand fusion energy with magnetic confinement, the first thing to know is the nature of a plasma.

ITER facts

February 22, 2012

ITER will be the biggest tokamak to be built to test nuclear fusion with magnetic confinement.
It is also one of the biggest experiments to be built.
M. Merola, the head of ITER Divertor group have found good comparisons to make feel the order of magnitude of this machine’s size.
You can find details of his presentation here:
