The Large Helical Device (LHD) is the world's largest superconducting plasma confinement device, and employs a heliotron magnetic configuration. The objectives are to conduct academic research on confinement of steady-state/high-temperature plasma from the viewpoint of developing the helical-type fusion reactor.
