The LTX-β Research Program and First Results


The Lithium Tokamak Experiment β (LTX-β) is a spherical tokamak based at PPPL. LTX-β is the upgraded version of LTX. Although LTX-β maintains LTX's geometry, the toroidal field, the plasma current and the heating were improved. Among the upgrades, two neutral beam injection systems were installed, both provided by TAE Technologies. The main objective of LTX-β is to test the confinement of hotter plasmas than those achieved in previous devices.
