A walk-through ASDEX Upgrade

In this new interactive animation produced by the Max Planck Institute of Plasma Physics in Germany, you're invited to take a virtual tour through the ASDEX Upgrade fusion device accompanied by doctoral students in plasma physics and engineering.

Since 1991, ASDEX Upgrade has operated as a midsize experiment whose essential plasma properties have been adapted to the conditions that will be present in future fusion power plants. (Click to view larger version...)
Since 1991, ASDEX Upgrade has operated as a midsize experiment whose essential plasma properties have been adapted to the conditions that will be present in future fusion power plants.
Whether you choose to enter the vacuum vessel or the control room, or you prefer a close-up explanation of the heating or diagnostic systems, you'll be accompanied in your visit by short, clear explanations in German or English.

Since 1991, ASDEX Upgrade has operated as a midsize experiment whose essential plasma properties—particularly plasma density, plasma pressure, and wall load—have been adapted to the conditions that will be present in future fusion power plants.

With a power-plant-like geometry, a tungsten-clad vessel wall, and powerful and flexible plasma heating, ASDEX Upgrade contributes to the preparation of ITER and the next-step machine, DEMO, through studies focused on plasma-wall interactions and plasma stability.
