Nuclear fusion: China commissions HL-2M reactor

The HL-2M tokamak fusion reactor in central China has been commissioned and has achieved its first plasma discharge, according to China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC).

The reactor is China’s largest and most advanced nuclear fusion experimental research device. Scientists hope the device can potentially help unlock a powerful clean energy source.

HL-2M, located at CNNC’s Southwestern Institute of Physics Chengdu, Sichuan province, uses a powerful magnetic field to fuse hot plasma and can reach temperatures of over 150 million degrees Celsius, approximately 10 times hotter than the core of the sun.
