Russia’s DV Efremov Institute of Electrophysical Apparatus (NIIEFA, part of Rosatom) says a Japanese test assembly has completed testing for the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER), under construction in France. Eight elements of a prototype divertor, passed 6,000 test cycles at loads from 5 to 20 MW per square metre, confirming "the compliance of the Japanese element with the highest requirements" of ITER. The tests were carried out at the ITER Divertor Test Facility (IDTF) in St Petersburg, which supports tasks for the ITER project.

UK-based Pulsar Fusion has entered into a partnership with US Princeton Satellite Systems (PSS) to apply machine learning to study data from the Princeton field-reverse configuration (PFRC-2) reactor. The aim is to advance delivery of practical fusion propelled spacecraft that can make interstellar space travel practical.

The first thermonuclear plasma has been achieved at the T-15MD tokamak, at Russia’s Kurchatov Institute and the facility is operating steadily, according to Kurchative Institute President Mikhail Kovalchuk. The physical launch of the T-15MD tokamak took place in May 2021. "The stable plasma, at millions of degrees Celsius, has been obtained.… This most complicated and expensive installation started up immediately and is now working, gaining power and reaching global parameters,” he said.

After successful recommissioning in autumn 2022, the Wendelstein 7-X stellarator fusion device at Germany's Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP) has achieved some significant breakthroughs. In 2023, an energy turnover of 1 gigajoule was targeted, but researchers have now achieved 1.3 gigajoules. Moreover, a new record for discharge time was achieved, with the hot plasma maintained for eight minutes.

Scientists at the US Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) are investigating tungsten heavy alloys as possible materials for use in advanced nuclear fusion reactors. Before fusion energy can be used as a power source, it will be necessary to develop advanced nuclear fusion reactors that can withstand the high temperatures and irradiation conditions that result from fusion reactions.
