A detailed report by researchers at PSFC and MIT spinout company Commonwealth Fusion Systems (CFS), published in a collection of six peer-reviewed papers in a special edition of the March issue of IEEE Transactions on […]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers are using advances in magnet technology to propose a new design for a practical compact tokamak fusion reactor. It’s one that might be realized in as little as a decade, they say. They suggest the era of practical fusion power, which could offer a nearly inexhaustible energy resource, may […]
