Small Fusion Experiment Hits Temperatures Hotter than the Sun's Core

Tuesday, May 30, 2023 - 10:03 in Physics & Chemistry

Future commercial fusion power plants will need to achieve temperatures of 100 million degrees C, which requires careful control of the plasma. Researchers have now achieved these temperatures on a compact spherical tokamak called ST40. The results are a step toward fusion pilot plants and the development of more compact, and potentially more economical, fusion power sources.
