US Hardware Contributions to ITER

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.

U.S. hardware contributions to the ITER project include design and fabrication for:
