One of those ideas is the stellarator, a fusion energy device that resembles the more symmetric tokamak and offers some unique advantages—along with some unique design problems. Like the tokamak, a stellarator is a ring of plasma confined within magnetic coils. Unlike a tokamak—where the ring looks like… CONTINUE READING
