Latest Tokamaks Stories
Researchers have discovered mechanisms critical to interactions between hot plasma and surfaces facing the plasma inside a thermonuclear fusion reactor, part of work aimed at developing coatings capable of withstanding the grueling conditions inside the reactors.
Progress in advanced operational scenarios for tokamak fusion devices provides hope for steady-state fusion power plants.
Research carried out at MIT's Alcator C-Mod fusion reactor may have brought the promise of fusion as a future power source a bit closer to reality, though scientists caution that a practical fusion powerplant is still decades away.
U.S. scientists say they've created a new cast stainless steel that is 70 percent stronger than comparable steels. Researchers at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory and the U.S.
Europe is looking into an alternative fusion project that would seek abundant clean energy using a colossal laser the size of a football stadium.
For about six months of the year, bursts of plasma swirl around a donut-shaped tube in a special reactor, helping scientists learn more about a potential future energy source: nuclear fusion.
BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union agreed on Friday to include India in a 10-billion-euro project to build an experimental nuclear fusion reactor that in the long-run could provide virtually unlimited, cheap and clean energy.
By Guy Faulconbridge MOSCOW (Reuters) - France is to host the world's firstnuclear fusion reactor, the project's multinational partnersagreed on Tuesday, bringing closer a technology backers saycould one day provide the world with endless cheap energy.
MOSCOW (Reuters) - France won its bid to build a10-billion-euro ($12.18 billion) experimental nuclear fusionreactor after more than a year of wrangling with Japan, theproject's multinational partners said on Tuesday.
By Guy Faulconbridge MOSCOW (Reuters) - Science's quest to find a cheap andinexhaustible way to meet global energy needs took a major stepforward on Tuesday when a 30-nation consortium chose France tohost the world's first nuclear fusion reactor.
Igor Yevgenyevich Tamm born in Vladivostok, Russia on July 8, 1895 was a Soviet physicist and mathematician. He studied at the University of Edinburgh in 1913-1914. He then switched to Moscow State University where he graduated in 1918. He developed an approximation method for many-body physics, in 1945. He worked with Andrei Dmitrievich Sakharov to create a tomohak system based on a toroidal magnetic thermonuclear reactor, in 1958. This led to the T-3 Soviet magnetic confinement...
