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.

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.

Russia’s DV Efremov Scientific Research Institute of Electrophysical Apparatus (NIIEFA) has sent a cyclotron to Thailand manufactured for the Institute for Nuclear Research (NRI) in the Thai province of Nakhon Naiok. The equipment, dispatched between 15 and 17 July, for the isochronous cyclotron SS-30/15, comprised nine containers with a total cargo weight of 120 tons. Rusatom Helskea JSC and Kinetics Corporation Ltd are building a cyclotron-radiochemical complex in Thailand commissioned by NRI. The cyclotron SS-30/15 with proton energies up to 30 MeV is a key part of the complex intended for the development of nuclear medicine and scientific research. The shipment was made after the successful completion of the acceptance tests and confirmation of all required characteristics.
