The ITER experimental fusion reactor
ITER is the experimental step between today’s studies of plasma physics and tomorrow's electricity-producing fusion power plants. It is based around a hydrogen plasma torus operating at over 100 million °C, and will produce 500 MW of fusion power.
Z accelerator produces fusion neutrons
The Z Accelerator in Albuquerque, New Mexico, has achieved the controlled fusion of a BB-sized capsule of deuterium (hydrogen with a neutron and proton in the nucleus) by bombarding it with 20 trillion watts of x-radiation for the brief period of five nanoseconds.
