On Jan 5th 2013, Heifei Insititute of Physical Science Chinese Academy of Sciences (CASHIPS) announces that its “big science projects”: EAST (Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak) or so-called “artificial sun” has obtained a significant experimental results. The auxiliary heating neutral beam injection (NBI) system works successfully to 100 seconds long pulses hydrogen neutral beam extraction in the integrated test platform, initially verify the system’s ability to operate in long pulse.

Scientists introduce that it is China’s first time to realize long-pulse neutral beam extraction, marking China has taken a solid step on the research field of neutral beam injection heating .


The Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST, internal designation HT-7U) is an experimental superconducting tokamak magnetic fusion energy reactor in Hefei, the capital city of Anhui Province
