Innovative Confinement Concepts

Innovative Confinement Concepts and Alternative Fusion Approaches
Between 1996 and 2000, the Fusion Energy Sciences Advisory Committee (FESAC) recommended a vigorous program in Innovative Confinement Concepts to explore several practical alternative paths to the mainline Magnetic Confinement and Inertial Confinement programs. It was never funded. After the U.S. joined the ITER program as a 9% partner, the ICC program was essentially dropped within the United States Department of Energy Office of Science.
