Mikrowelt: Nonlineare Diffusionsprozesse
Power: more than 400 Megawatts, comparable to a conventional power plant (ITER will not yet provide electricity to network)
Energy confinement time: 500 seconds
Q-factor: more than 10
ITER will provide information about the influence that the 'ash' of the fusion process, Helium, has on the discharge. Moreover, ITER will 'breed' its Tritium demand itself: the plasma vessel will be covered with Lithium which transforms into Tritium under neutron bombardement. This way, one may dispense with the transport of radioactive material.
