Title: Magnetic fusion tops limit at Princeton

Abstract

Physicists and engineers at Princeton University`s Tokamak Fusion Test Reactor (TFTR) have pushed the machine beyond its design specifications to set a new record for fusion energy output. Even better, the fusion machine is running more smoothly than ever. A hot magnetically confined plasma in TFTR produced 10.7 megawatts of fusion power in this experiment. Further description is given in this paper.
