Lithium Tokamak Experiment (LTX)

The Lithium Tokamak Experiment (LTX) produced its first plasma in September, 2008. The new device will continue the promising, innovative work started on CDX-U in 2000, involving the use of pure lithium metal on surfaces facing or contacting the plasma. PPPL researchers believe that LTX may herald a new regime of plasma performance with improved stability, lower impurity levels, better particle and temperature control, and more efficient operation.
