The Large Helical Device (LHD) at the National Institute for Fusion Science in Toki, Japan, is the world's largest stellarator.
"Build the future" is the title of a new masterpiece in science photography featuring the fusion and accelerator landscape in Japan. Joe Nishizawa is an up-and-coming photographer who used to work in the design department of a carmaker and who now focuses on science and technology. "Drawing the future though R&D is very important for Japan," Nishizawa writes in the foreword. "I produced this book to introduce this idea to a wider audience."
The book, which at the moment is only available in Japanese, portrays big national projects and gives interviews with leading scientists. Even if your Japanese skills are yet to be discovered, you will certainly enjoy this artistic approach to the high-tech world.
