According to the Global Times newspaper, the research is taking place at an institution in the city of Hefei (center) that is affiliated with the National Academy of Sciences.

Last year the system was connected in Chengdu (southwest) and then successfully achieved the first plasma discharge with a temperature of 100 million degrees Celsius for 20 seconds.

Its design allows it to replicate the natural reactions occurring in the sun using hydrogen and deuterium gases as fuels, and then provide clean energy through controlled nuclear fusion.

Official sources indicated that the HL-2M Tokamak will support China’s participation in the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor project, launched in October 2007 and considered the largest nuclear fusion experiment in the world.

They also said the technology is useful for treating cancer, developing maglev trains and applying magnetic resonance imaging.
