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

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 […]

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 […]
