Started reading up on tokamaks today (need to finish the article another day as it’s a lot to take in) and they’re pretty interesting. In essence, they’re giant magnets with an injection component so that different substances can be added for regulation, depending on what the operator wants to do. In addition, they use a layer of expensive heavy metals for the primary structure with an additional layer of sacrificial light metals to keep the plasma contained while keeping the heavy metals from leaching into the plasma and stopping the reaction. The magnetic flux is additionally controlled by the shape of the containment structure, adjusting the overall reaction sustainability.
