ASDEX Upgrade fusion device - a virtual visit
The 360-degree panorama is leading you right at the site into the plasma chamber of the ASDEX Upgrade fusion research device. The spectacular tour is putting you into the core of the device, otherwise accessible only to specialist personnel – to the hottest spot in Germany, where plasmas with temperatures exceeding 100 million degrees are produced. Access is also provided to the periphery of the device accommodating the technical facilities, or to the control room, from which the experiments are monitored (photographer: Volker Steger).
How it works:
After starting the panorama you can look, via mouse movement or gyro function on PC, tablet computer resp. smartphone, into every corner and zoom onto every screw. In brief video interludes PhD students at IPP talk about their work places.
