US Hardware Contributions to ITER

US ITER Hardware

US ITER will contribute hardware in support of 12 different ITER systems.

The ITER Tokamak will be the largest ever built, with a plasma volume of 840 cubic meters and a weight of 23,000 tons. The maximum plasma volume in current tokamaks is 100 cubic meters - achieved by both Europe's JET and Japan's JT-60. ITER members will share hardware procurements for the design and construction of this record-breaking device.

US hardware contributions to the ITER project include design and fabrication for:

In addition, the US is contributing to the design of both the tokamak blanket/shield and the edge localized modes which support vertical stabilization of the plasma.
