Tokamak Simulation: Toroidal Plasma Currents

A tokamak is a device that uses a powerful magnetic field to confine a hot plasma and produce controlled thermonuclear fusion power. The physics of the device can be studied using visualization. Here, radio frequency (RF) waves in MegaAmpere toroidal plasma currents are launched to confine solar temperature plasmas.
