China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) said the HL-2M Tokamak "artificial sun" uses a "powerful magnetic field to melt hot plasma and can reach temperatures of over 150 million degrees Celsius," the Xinhua news agency reported.
Innovation is hailed as a major breakthrough in China's nuclear research capabilities. Will use hydrogen and deuterium gases as fuel. The giant device is located in Chengdu in southwest Sichuan province.
The device is expected to provide "clean energy through controlled nuclear fusion".
It is further noted that the device is the largest at the country level and the highest in parameters, with a more advanced structure and control mode than its predecessor, the HL-2A Tokamak.
"Power retention time on Tokamak international equipment is less than one second. "The firing time of the HL-2M is about 10 seconds, with an energy isolation time of several hundred milliseconds," said Yang Qingwei, chief engineer of the HL -2M at the CNNC Southwest Institute of Physics.
