The USA is investing over USD 7.5 million in the construction of the Wendelstein 7-X fusion device at Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics in Greifswald. In the three-year project, starting in 2011, scientists from the fusion institutes at Princeton, Oak Ridge and Los Alamos are contributing auxiliary magnetic coils, measuring instruments and planning of special sections of the wall cladding for equipping the German fusion device—one of a total of nine projects in the Innovative Approaches to Fusion program of the USA Department of Energy who will accordingly become a partner in the Wendelstein 7-X research program.
