Physicists have just rewritten a fundamental rule for nuclear fusion reactors that could deliver twice the power

Future fusion reactions inside tokamaks could produce much more energy than previously thought, thanks to groundbreaking new research that found that a fundamental law for such reactors was wrong.

The research, led by physicists from the Swiss Plasma Center at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EFPL), has determined that the maximum density of hydrogen fuel is about twice the “Greenwald Limit” – an estimate derived from more than 30 years.
