But at the same time, there are those who are already thinking beyond that date. During operation, how will we control the shape of the plasma and optimize plasma performance? Plasma control will be a crucial factor for the successful operation of ITER. Axel Winter, a physicist from Germany and one of the first Monaco-ITER Fellows, is leading the development of ITER's sophisticated plasma control system.
