ARC reactor design uses superconducting magnets to draw fusion power closer – Gizmag

Fusion power can seem a bit like the last bus at night; it’s always coming, but never arrives. MIT is working to change that with a new compact tokamak fusion reactor design based on the latest commercially available magnetic superconductor technology. The ARC (affordable, robust, compact) reactor design promises smaller, cheaper reactors that could make fusion power practical within 10 years.MIT’s new compact tokamak fusion reactor design is based on the latest magnetic superconductor technology.
