Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Plasma Science & Fusion Center and Commonwealth Fusion Systems, will present their work at the American Physical Society Division of Plasma Physics meeting in Portland, Oregon. The scientists are working to dramatically speed up the development of fusion energy with a breakthrough technology – high-temperature superconductors, which can be used to […]

Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory has proven Germany’s Wendelstein 7-X (W7-X) fusion facility has set a world record for stellarators. Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) finely tuned instrument strongly suggests that the record made by the design of the stellarator can be developed to capture on Earth the fusion that drives the sun and stars, creating […]
