The devices are organized in 4 main configuration categories:
- Tokamaks - both conventional and spherical type
- Stellarators and Heliotrons
- Alternative Concepts - this category includes the following types: dense plasma focus; field reversed configuration; inertial electrostatic fusion; levitated dipole; magnetic mirror machine; magnetized target fusion; pinch; reverse field pinch; simple magnetized torus; space propulsor; spheromak.
For each device, the info below can be visualized by hovering the cursor over the device marker:
- Device Name
- Device Configuration
- Device Type
- Device Status (operating; under construction; planned)
- Design (experimental; demonstration)
- Ownership (public; private; public-private)
- Website (each website can be launched by clicking on the device marker).
The statistics provided can be used as filters. It is also possible to filter per country by choosing each country from the tables.
In addition, the following dashboards are available:
- Tech Data: 0D design parameters of experimental tokamaks and stellarators/heliontrons in operation or under construction.
- Country Stats: Number of fusion devices per country, per design, status and configuration.
- Org Stats: Number of fusion devices per organization, per design, status and configuration.
- FEC2020 IDX: Number of first authorship papers submitted at FEC2020 per country/organization and per track. Categories are: EX - Magnetic Fusion Experiments; TH - Magnetic Fusion Theory and Modelling; TECH - Fusion Energy Technology; IFE - Inertial Fusion Energy; IAC - Innovative and Alternative Fusion Concepts; OV - Overview.
- FECs IDX: Number of first authorship papers submitted at FEC2006–2020 per country and per track; and total number of papers per FEC and per track. Categories are: EX - Magnetic Fusion Experiments; TH - Magnetic Fusion Theory and Modelling; TECH - Fusion Energy Technology; IFE - Inertial Fusion Energy; IAC - Innovative and Alternative Fusion Concepts; OV - Overview.
- Country Profiles: Detailed information on each country (by using the filter).
