Welcome. Our study is "Plasma Control in Steady-state operation."

Hanada lab studies plasma in steady state operation on QUEST spherical tokamak. Our tool to understand plasma-wall interaction is "the high temperature (up to 500C) wall (HTW)". Active control of particle balance with the HTW and modeling of PWI in steady state tokamak opeation are in progress to simulate condition of nuclear fusion reactor. And more! We work for plasma start-up/heating using radio frequency and Co-axial helicity injection (CHI). JOIN US!


・Modeling of particle balance in steady state tokamak operation
