Nuclear fusion research. Interior of the JET Tokamak device showing the mascot slave remote handling manipulator (centre). The ring-shaped chamber can confine hot plasma for use in fusion research. The remote handler allows both repairs and modifications in a hostile environment. The JET (Joint European Torus) device is the largest Tokamak in the world. It is situated in Culham, Oxfordshire, England, and is part of the EFDA (European Fusion Development Agreement) initiative to research & investigate the viability of fusion power. Nuclear fusion is the joining of light elements to form heavier elements, which releases large amounts of energy.
