Nuclear fusion research. Cutaway computer artwork of the planned ITER tokamak device. It will be the first full scale fusion device to produce energy at a level of an electricity-producing power station. It works by magnetically compressing a plasma so that the atoms fuse. The ITER consortium consists of Russia, Canada, Japan and Europe. ITER is an acronym for International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor, and is also Latin for "the way". Nuclear fusion is the joining (fusing) of light elements to form heavier elements, which releases large amounts of energy. It is hoped that fusion will be a clean, renewable energy source for the future.
