"Mercury practically zero"

Click to view the video...

During the reception for the MT 22 participants at the Palais de la Bourse in Marseille last week, a new ITER Organization video celebrating the 50th anniversary of applied superconductivity "Mercury practically zero" had its official debut.

This video will take us first to the Institut Néel, in Grenoble France, then to CERN in Geneva. Robert Aymar will guide us at the Tore Supra installation in CEA-Cadarache and at the ITER Poloidal Field Coils Winding Facility. Finally, we'll head for the Neurospin facility in Saclay, near Paris, and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany.
