Ignitor is a compact fusion reactor based on the magnetic confinement of high energy plasmas. It is the first experiment proposed and designed to achieve ignition in a fusion reacting plasma.

Ignitor will provide the scientific community with the essential understanding of the physics of fusion burning plasmas, as well as the conditions needed to achieve a controlled, self-sustaining reaction.

This is a necessary step towards demonstrating that a fusion reactor can produce net power, therefore harnessing the attractive, sustainable energy resource that is fusion.
