Steps in nuclear fusion research
Research into controlled nuclear fusion since 1956 is discussed beginning with work on high temperature plasma physics and the pinch effect. The main problems of fusion research are identified and details are provided of the major conferences which have taken place. The improvements in tokamak performance and developments in ICRH are documented and progress achieved in the reduction of impurity problems is outlined. The present situation as regards the planning of ITER is also reported.
