Reversed Field Pinches (RFP TCP)
The RFP TCP shares instrumentation and carries out joint experiments to develop theories and models of the physics phenomenon of reversed-field pinches (RFP) and related technologies.
Studying the reversed-field pinch through 3D imaging provides insights for the design of fusion technologies (shown here on the EXTRAP T2-R, Sweden).*
Co-ordinated experiments on RFP fusion devices:
- EXTRAP T2-R (Sweden)
- Madison Symmetric Torus (MST) (United States)
- Reversed Field Experiment (RFX) (Italy)
- Reversed Field Pinch of Low Aspect Ration (Japan)
Contracting Parties: 3
The RFP TCP website is under development.
