Japan Atomic Energy Agency's website provides information on magnetic fusion plasma research in Japan, including that for the large Japanese tokamak JT-60.
Joint European Torus (JET)
The world's largest magnetic confinement fusion experiment. News, fusion basics, and scientific information. Culham, United Kingdom.
Korean superconducting tokamak advanced research project is a superconducting tokamak facility for controlled fusion research. First plasma was obtained in 2008. One of the main goals is long-pulse non-inductive plasma heating and current drive.
Large Helical Device (LHD)
The largest current fusion experiment based on the stellarator concept. Located at NIFS, Japan. The mission of the LHD project is to develop a scientific basis for stellarator fusion reactor. An important feature in the LHD design is a high magnetic field of 3-4 Tesla produced by superconducting magnets.

Extremely low-aspect-ratio tokamak experiment at the Department of Engineering Physics, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
A project to explore the quasi-poloidal approach to compact stellarators. Project reports and reviews.
Describes the concept and its development.
The spheromak is a toroidal magnetic confinement concept where no toroidal magnetic field coils link the torus. The magnetic field is generated primarily by plasma currents.
The SST-1 Tokamak
Steady State Superconducting Tokamak at the Institute for Plasma Research, Gugarat, India, has an objective of a steady-state operation via the RF and NBI plasma heating and current drive.
