  • FER Plasma Design Group
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS)


Conceptual design studies of the Fusion Experimental Reactor (FER) have been conducted at Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute (JAERI) in line with a long-range plan for fusion reactor development laid out in the long-term program of the Atomic Energy Commission issued in 1982. The FER succeeding the large tokamak device JT-60 is a tokamak reactor with a major mission of realizing a self-ignited long-burning DT plasma and demonstrating engineering feasibility.
