the target area where it explodes into tiny ice particles and disperses. This serves to significantly reduce the temperature and with it, the energy level of the plasma. The ice pellets are to be produced not only from hydrogen, but also from its isotope deuterium. The fusion laboratory’s gas supply system, which operates at a pressure of 300 bar, was installed by Messer. Messer also supplies the high-purity gases that the project needs, such as hydrogen, helium, argon, neon and nitrogen.
