The progress and current status of Tokamak: a systematic review
Pioneer academy school, Changzhou, Jiangsu, 213000, China
Nuclear fusion energy is an ideal energy source for the future due to the clean and efficient features, first proposed by Russian scientists in the 1950s. With the successful construction and operation of a batch of tokamak devices globally, a series of major achievements have been realized in magnetic confinement fusion (MF). On this basis, the recent progress and current status of tokamak devices are systematically reviewed from academic literatures and official websites. To better demonstrate, the principle of MF and the history of a tokamak are introduced firstly. Subsequently, developments of four typical state-of-art tokamak facilities (JT60, FTFR, JET, EAST) are discussed detailly. These results offer a guideline for tokamak device construction and MCF realization.
