About KSTAR

Korea Superconducting Tokamak Advanced Research
KSTAR, the most recently built among global tokamak facilities, is a superconducting tokamak facility developed in Korea with the purposes of 'long-term fusion plasma operation' and 'acquisition of controlling technology,' which are tasks that must be solved in order to commercialize fusion energy. To be operated as an international joint research facility for fusion, KSTAR is expected to take the role of performing preceding research using pilot devices during the construction phase of ITER and the role as a satellite during the operation phase of ITER as the first tokamak facility in the world developed using the same superconducting material as ITER, Nb3Sn, and as a hub for the global fusion research.
