    • The research conducted at Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik (IPP) in Garching and Greifswald is concerned with investigating the physical basis of a fusion power plant. Like the sun, such a plant is to generate energy from fusion of atomic nuclei. With its workforce of approx. 1.000 IPP is one of the largest fusion research centres in Europe.

      In Garching, IPP is conducting the tokamak ASDEX Upgrade, Germany's largest fusion device. The WENDELSTEIN 7-X stellarator, successor of WENDELSTEIN 7-AS (Garching, till July 2002 ) is being built at the Greifswald Branch Institute of IPP.
