Record of Longest Plasma Duration in Tore Supra and EAST
In December 2003, Tore Supra achieved 6.5 minutes' long-duration plasma pulse.
June 2012, EAST achieved over 400s long pulse steady-state divertor discharge.
Joint Experiments on HL-2A
The joint experiments have provided relevant results for ITER operation: mitigation of heat load on in-vessel components, control of plasma instabilities, etc.
The joint experiments have discovered new physics phenomena: turbulences, energetic particles, etc.
