United States DIII-D fusion reactor during maintenance in 2017
A Dutch-American team of researchers has discovered that the beam to suppress plasma instabilities in a nuclear fusion reactor becomes two to three times broader than calculated. This is a challenge, because such a spread-out beam is much weaker, and there isn't always extra energy to make a stronger beam. The researchers published their findings in the journal Nuclear Fusion.
