China produces key component for nuclear fusion facility
Hefei, France (XNA) Apr 26, 2016
A world-class ion cyclotron resonant heating (ICRH) antenna, a key part of nuclear fusion facility, was delivered to a French institute in Anhui Province on Monday. The antenna was manufactured by the Chinese Academy of Sciences institute of plasma physics (ASIPP), and delivered to the Institute for Magnetic Fusion Research (IRFM) under French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA). The antenna, which has reached French nuclear power standard, will be used to heat plasma for ... read more
