Fusion: New successful experiments on the German stellarator with scientists from Wigner RCP

Another successful experimental period have been finished on the German fusion device, Wendelstein 7-X. Plasma discharges longer than ever have been recorded by the video diagnostic and beam emission spectroscopy developed by Wigner Research Centre. The restarted experiments in July was preceded by half-year improvements from the Wigner Plasma Physics Department, which is discussed in more detail here. One of the goals of Wendelstein 7-X […]

Restart of the star factory

Restart of the star factory

The new experimental campaign on the stellarator has started The current experimental cycle has been launched on the world’s largest stellarator. During the next four month Wendelstein 7-X will produce longer and higher energy plasma discharges then before, thanks to the numerous upgrades and the experiences from the last two years. Contrary to the 30s long plasma discharges archived during the last campaign, now they […]

Angela Merkel started the first experiments over one and a half year ago, which were continued in this September after a longer shutdown and development period at Wendelstein 7-X (W7-X). The fusion research groups at the Plasma Physics Department of the Wigner Research Centre for Physics of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (HAS Winger RCP) did not stand idle during this one-year-long period of reconstruction.

Video camera system improvements for Wendelstein 7-X

It has been over a year and a half since the worlds biggest and most complex fusion experimental device, Wendelstein 7-X has started in Greifswald, Germany. The video diagnostics system of the Hungarian team provided the first images of the first plasma discharges that came into the World’s press. Since then, the Hungarian team has been continuously working on further developmentsfor the upcoming experiments starting […]

Our new diagnostics departed to Wendelstein 7-X stellarator

New Hungarian diagnostics departed and arrives today at the Wendelstein 7-X, the world’s largest stellarator type experimental fusion device in Greifswald, Germany, where the work of the Hungarians is well known. Feverish preparation and packing preceded the departure of the accelerated alkaline atomic diagnostics, designed and manufactured by the members of the Beam Emission Spectroscopy Research Group, Wigner Research Center for Physics,  Dr. Gábor Anda, […]

Hungarian camera system recorded the first hydrogen plasma in W7-X

Hungarian camera system recorded the first hydrogen plasma in W7-X On the 3rd of February 2016, fusion community payed attention to Greifswald again. Wendelstein 7-X produced its first hydrogen plasma as a start of the scientific campaign. The first pictures of the hydrogen plasma were captured by the Hungarian camera system just like in December when W7-X officially started. Background: You can read more about […]
