The latest tidings from the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics, creators of the Wendelstein 7-X, are that a new record has been set for the so-called fusion product.
Wendelstein 7-X sets new record in its quest for practical fusion power creators of the Wendelstein 7-X, are that a new record has been set for the fusion product – another significant step
Its purpose is to advance stellarator technology (first conceived by Lyman Spitzer) and though this experimental reactor will consume far more power than it generates, it is used to evaluate the main components of a future fusion power plant; it was developed based on the predecessor Wendelstein 7-AS experimental reactor.
The stellarator fusion device Wendelstein 7-X achieved record results during its three-month experimental campaign in 2018, reports the Max Planck Institute …
Using principles similar to those deployed in large hydroelectric power plants, a team of Chinese researchers has developed a tiny nanogenerator that can potentially sit inside a vein and generate electricity from blood rushing through it.
In the October-2013 edition of Nature Communications, they reported a new record fusion rate: an estimated 80 million fusion reactions during the 1.5 nanoseconds that the laser fired, which is at least 100 times more than any previous proton-boron experiment.
Top responsesI just don’t get why so little people care for fusion. Honestly this is the most exiting research done today12 votesWhen comparing solar, wind, fusion, etc., here’s something to consider. Given human nature, people will use whatever energy becomes available. … read more2 votesQuestion please. The information on the W7X progress often states that it is confirming their predictions. Is there information on what the final prediction is when … read more2 votesSolar and wind are great. We need to develop and use those. But there will always be a need for fusion in special cases. Cases which may not exist until fusion … read more1 voteSee all
The purpose of the Wendelstein 7-X, the world’s largest stellarator-type fusion device, is to investigate the suitability of this configuration for use in a power plant.

Researchers claim its unusual design, which is housed in a huge lab in Greifswald, Germany, could finally help make fusion power a reality.
German Nuclear Fusion Experiment Sets Records. The stellarator was largely replaced by the tokamak in the 1960s, but Germany’s Wendelstein 7-X could be bringing the reactor back from the dead.
r/Futurology – Limitless Energy: South Korean Reactor Sets a New Record for Stable Nuclear Fusion – The Korean Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research reactor was able to sustain the high-performance plasma for a record 70 seconds.
When Germany’s Wendelstein 7-X (W7-X) fusion facility set a world record for stellarators recently, a finely tuned instrument built and delivered by the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) proved the achievement.
