Abstract:

The National Institute for Fusion Science, operated by the Ministry of Education, Science, and Culture Monbusho inside the Nagoya University campus, was visited. The current major research activity is focused on a new fusion reactor design concept called Heliotron. The research goal is to build a bigger Heliotron device and achieve DT reactions by the end of 1997. Currently, hydrogen plasmas are used in the existing small Heliotron device to obtain good data for the future design of the large Heliotron device. MM
