Abstract

During the past decade, considerable experimental and theoretical progress has been made in the development of the Spherical Torus (ST) configuration. A second generation of ‘proof of principal’ devices, including GLOBUS-M, MAST and NSTX, are now operating with plasma currents in the 1–2 MA range. The ST has already been the basis of a reactor study, and the concept has also been considered in the context of a volume neutron source.
