Abstract

In the search for inexhaustible energy sources, nuclear fusion energy has received much attention in the past decades. Of the various confinement approaches, the Tokamak is by far the most developed fusion concept. The recent achievements in plasma research at major U. S. fusion laboratories promise demonstration of the scientific feasibility of magnetic fusion within the next few years.
