Introduction of JFT-2M
(High performance medium-sized tokamak device)
- Researchers in the world participate the JFT-2M experiments. Domestically, cooperative experiments are going on widely with researchers of universities and national institutes.
- Many pioneering experiments were performed in the nuclear fusion research.
- Provision of physics data for the ITER design
- Preliminary experiments for JT-60
- The Emperor Showa visited the JFT-2 device, which was the previous device before remodelling.
- The DC generator operating the device is largest in the world, which is registered in the Guinness Book of Records in 1997/1998. This DC generator was manufactured, miraculously undamaged in the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake.
