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.

Physicists at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) have proposed that the formation of "hills and valleys" in magnetic field lines could be the source of sudden collapses of heat ahead of disruptions that can damage doughnut-shaped tokamak fusion facilities. Their discovery could help overcome a critical challenge facing such facilities.
