The last 12 months have seen very rapid developments in magnet technology at Tokamak Energy. Senior HTS Magnet Engineer Greg Brittles describes the team's achievements in developing a very neat, modular coil design that makes for extremely robust, easy to assemble, and ultra-stable high temperature superconducting (HTS) magnets.

Greg shows a REBCO magnet that has produced a field strength well in excess of 20-Tesla, which we believe to be a world first. This crucial milestone for Tokamak Energy proves the possibility of high temperature superconductors to deliver the fierce magnetic fields required for fusion energy and the team are now addressing the challenges of scaling up these magnets significantly for use in future tokamaks.
