The photo taken on March 14, 2006 shows the Experimental Advanced Superconducting Tokamak (EAST) (formerly HT-7U), which is also known as "artificial sun". The EAST, the world's first all-superconducting Tokamak designed and developed by China, has completed successfully its first engineering adjustment, which lays groundwork for its operation and state appraisal by the end of the year.

Technicians are intalling the full superconducting experimental Tokamak fusion device in Hefei, capital city of east China's Anhui Province on Feb 4, 2006. Most parts of the device have been installed and experiments will start soon. The full superconducting experimental Tokamak fusion device, nicknamed "artificial sun", can generate infinite, clean nuclear-fusion-based energy. It will be built in March or April in Hefei.
