History of fusion research

From 1920: Basic physical research

Nuclear fusion already existed when the first stars formed in the universe billions of years ago.

Until the early 20th century, the glow of the stars seemed inexplicable to man. It was the British astrophysicist Arthur Stanley Eddington (1882-1944) who, in 1920, became the first scientist to assume that stars obtained their energy from the fusion of hydrogen and helium nuclei.

The New Zealand physicist Ernest Rutherford (1871-1937) and his assistant Mark Oliphant (1901-2000), who succeeded in fusing deuterium to helium in 1934, gave the decisive impetus for experimental fusion research. Tritium was also indirectly discovered, which Luis W. Alvarez and Robert Cornog observed directly in the world's first cyclotron accelerator. This means that both isotopes of heavy hydrogen were known, which to this day play a central role in fusion research.

Thereafter, theoretical fusion research in the military field made rapid progress with the conception of the hydrogen bomb. In 1954 the USA detonated the first H-bomb on Bikini Atoll, followed a year later by the Soviet Union ...

1980s to 2010s: Advanced Tokamaks

Fusion research only got a boost when the Moscow Kurchatov Institute reported a world record: With the T3 tokamak, a plasma temperature of 1968 million degrees and an enclosure time of more than 10 seconds were achieved in 10. The background to this was a new process in which the plasma is enclosed in an annular area by means of magnetic field coils and a current flowing in the plasma. As a result, most institutes in the USA, France, Japan and Germany switched to tokamak research. In the 1970s in America, Japan, Europe and the Soviet Union, various plans emerged for larger tokamaks, with which one wanted to achieve greater fusion achievements for the first time ...

Nuclear fusion

Nuclear fusion is the term used to describe nuclear reactions in which two atomic nuclei fuse to form a new nucleus. Nuclear fusion reactions are the reason why the sun and all shining stars radiate energy ...

The previous experiments on controlled thermonuclear fusion do not yet show a positive energy balance. The most successful so far has been the British JET (Joint European Torus), which was able to achieve a peak output of 16 MW for less than a second. 65 percent of the energy put in could be recovered as fusion energy ...
