Wendelstein 7-X: second series of experiments successfully completed

Higher energy densities, longer discharges

As planned the second experimental campaign of the world’s largest fusion experiment of the stellarator-type, the Wendelstein 7-X, was finished before Christmas 2017. All components functioned correctly and allowed the scientists to run the experiment with up to 75 Mega Joule for 30 seconds.

The third and last part of the experimental series is planned to start in July 2018 and will verify the possibility of a continuous operation of the stellerator.
