Uragan-2M (U-2M, Ukrainian: Ураган-2М) is a stellarator (magnetic plasma confinement, controlled thermonuclear fusion experiment) installed at the Institute of Plasma Physics National Science Center, which is part of the Kharkiv Institute of Physics and Technology (IFS KIPT) in Kharkov, Ukraine. It was the largest stellarator (torsatron) in Europe.[1]

Specifications

Uragan-2M is a medium-sized stellarator with reduced helical corrugations. The unit has a torus radius of 170 cm (67 inches), a plasma radius of up to 24 cm (9.4 inches), and a toroidal magnetic field of up to 2.4 teslas (24,000 G).
