The National Compact Stellarator Experiment (NCSX) represents a promising and uncompleted pathway to fusion as a safe, clean and virtually limitless source of energy for generating electricity.
The National Spherical Torus Experiment (NSTX) at the U.S. Department of Energy's Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) is yielding research results that may open an attractive path towards developing fusion energy as an abundant, safe, affordable and environmentally sound means of generating electricity.
The NSTX device is exploring a novel structure for the magnetic field used to contain the hot ionized gas, called plasma, the fuel for the production of fusion energy.
