Reversed-Field eXperiment


RFX in 2007

The Reversed-Field eXperiment (RFX) is the largest reversed field pinch device presently in operation, situated in Padua, Italy. It was constructed from 1985 to 1991, and has been in operation since 1992.[1]

The experiments carried out in the last two decades with two large RFP machines (MST in Madison, Wisconsin[2] and RFX in Padova[3]) provided new insight on the physical phenomena taking place in magnetically confined plasma dynamics.[4][5]
