Steady State Fusion Demo

Logo for Steady State Fusion Demo
As part of the Internet Plasma Physics Education eXperience, this Java applet is designed to illustrate the basic principles of magnetically confined thermonuclear fusion. The applet allows the user to specify a fusion reactor's operating parameters. The resulting fusion performance is simulated and presented to the user numerically and visually.

This looks like a fun way to learn about Tokamak design. A link is provided for
a good introduction to fusion research.
