Frascati Tokamak Upgrade

The Frascati Tokamak Upgrade is a tokamak operating at Frascati, Italy. Building on the Frascati Tokamak experiment, FTU is a compact, high-magnetic-field tokamak (Bθ = 8 T). It begin operation in 1990 and has since achieved operating goals of 1.6 MA at 8 T and particle density greater than 3e|20 per cubic meter.
