This publication provides a worldwide survey of public and private fusion devices with experimental and demonstration designs, which are currently in operation, under construction or being planned. It provides details such as the name of the device, its status, ownership, host country and organization, and does so for over 130 fusion devices. Information is given in the form of short descriptions of the device goals and main features. The publication is intended to complement the IAEA's online database of fusion devices - the Fusion Device Information System (FusDIS) and further elaborates the information available there. The objective of that database and this publication is to provide a global overview of fusion research and development activities from the perspective of device capabilities.
