First plasma was acheived in the DTU tokamak in late March 2019.

First spherical tokamak plasma in Denmark has been created by injecting microwaves into a new fusion device at DTU. The device is a fusion research device and is a collaboration between DTU and the UK based Tokamak Energy. The machine will serve as a test bed for diagnostic development, dedicated research projects and general student projects. See more information see
