International
Thermonuclear
Experimental
Reactor (ITER) is an international nuclear fusion
research and engineering project, which is under
construction in France, to be completed in 2019.
ITER is based on the 'tokamak' concept of
magnetic confinement, in which the plasma is
contained in a doughnut-shaped vacuum vessel.
The fuela mixture of deuterium and tritium, two
isotopes of hydrogenis heated to temperatures in
excess of 150 millionC, forming a hot plasma.
Strong magnetic fields are used to keep the plasma
away from the walls. It aims to produce 500 MW
of output power for 50 MW of input power, but
more importantly, to develop technologies and
processes needed for a fusion power plant.
