This paper reports first results following construction of the W7X stellarator, confirming the accuracy of the field coils by identifying the flux surfaces produced by the vacuum field. The successful construction of W7X is indeed a capstone achievement, requiring both extraordinary engineering precision and, importantly, sustained political willpower. (One(More)
A linear experiment dedicated to the study of driven magnetic reconnection is presented. The new device (VINETA II) is suitable for investigating both collisional and near collisionless reconnection. Reconnection is achieved by externally driving magnetic field lines towards an X-point, inducing a current in the background plasma which consequently modifies(More)
