Printable version / Version imprimable

IAEA—Check out the IAEA’s new webpage identifying the locations of all known experimental fusion research devices worldwide. Based on information which it collects and then reviews with the International Fusion Research Council, the IAEA launched a new webpage with a world map indicating where the 115 fusion research projects, in 26 countries, are either now operating (90), under construction (8), closed (2) or planned (15).

Each project is identified: 94 of them public, 21 private; 64 of them Tokamaks, 13 Stellarators/Heliotrons; 7 laser; and 31 based on differing “Innovative/Alternative Concepts”.
