ARC Divertor Design Class Final Presentation

Following on the success of the first iteration of the ARC fusion reactor design class, Professor Dennis Whyte, director of MIT’s Plasma Science and Fusion Center, has led a new team of students to create a viable solution for the heat exhaust system on ARC. Presented in this video is the vision for what this heat exhaust system might look like on such a device. The innovative design has significant advantages in terms of neutron loading, tritium breeding, and plasma control.
