28th IEEE Symposium on Fusion Engineering, Jacksonville, Florida, USA, 2 – 6 June 2019

Investment in past fusion experiments has been motivated largely by the study of tokamak physics, and has been vital to provide a sound physics basis for design of a power reactor. However, meeting the challenge of realising fusion energy production will require considerable and increasing investment in facilities for testing and development of …

The spherical torus/tokamak (ST) is a potentially attractive configuration for narrowing scientific and technical gaps to a fusion demonstration power plant and as a more compact and/or modular fusion power source. Due to a reduced plasma surface area to volume ratio, the ST configuration offers the potential to access high power exhaust heat fluxe…
