The World's Strongest Magnet Will Be Used in an Artificial Sun

 


Fusion energy technology has just experienced its latest breakthrough. A research team led by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Commonwealth Fusion Systems (CFS) has demonstrated the world's strongest artificial magnet.

The high-temperature superconducting electromagnet produces a field strength of 20 tesla, a measure of the strongest field of its kind on Earth. This technology will be a key component of SPARC, a fusion device that will be launched in 2025.


Quoted from Universe Today, SPARC is a tokamak being developed by MIT and CFS. This Tokamak will be one of the "artificial suns" to drive the field of plasma that produces renewable energy in the future.



Systems based on superconducting electromagnets are nothing new. In addition to SPARC, the ITER tokamak under construction in France will also use low-temperature superconductors. Meanwhile, the SPARC tokamak developed by MIT-CFS has a high temperature technology that allows for a stronger magnetic field.


SPARC and its current net positive energy output are still in the early stages. MIT and CFS plan to develop the ARC fusion power plant, which may be operational after 2033.


When the "artificial sun" developed by various countries comes into operation, fusion energy will finally become a reality and begin the world's transition to using new energy sources.
