UK-based Tokamak Energy is developing new laser measurement technology to control extreme conditions inside future fusion power. Plasma temperatures inside a tokamak reach over 100m degrees Celsius. The hydrogen fuel must be closely and accurately measured by a specialist laser system to keep the hot plasma stable, hold density and maintain fusion conditions.
