The upgraded Mega Amp Spherical Tokamak (MAST Upgrade) facility at Culham Centre for Fusion Energy is one of the medium-sized tokamaks that contribute to EUROfusion experiments. It is the first tokamak to trial the innovative Super-X divertor – a high-power exhaust system that reduces power loads from particles leaving the plasma. If successful, Super-X could be used in DEMO and other future fusion devices.
