Efficiency

Sept. 13, DEAJEON, South Korea -- South Korea's National Fusion Research Institute (NFRI) completes a  a fully superconducting nuclear fusion test bed using an advanced magnetic system that can help in the development of a limitless power source, in the Daedeok Science Park on Sept. 13. Built after 12 years of work with a 309 billion (US$332.08 million), the Korea Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research (KSTAR) device is the first in the world to use the highly efficient niobium-three-tin (Nb3Sn) cables to generate powerful magnetic fields that can create dense, super-heated plasma.
