The following incomplete and unreliable table gives details about 38 spherical tokamaks, their dimensions and special features, with links to appropriate web sites wherever possible. See the key below the table to understand the colour coding. Use the data only for broad comparison purposes and remember to check more reliable sources if it is important. The data in the table has not been thoroughly refereed but I am pleased to have received feeback from many helpful people and welcome more. Please contact me if you think there are significant errors or omissions, with evidence to support your claim.
'Conventional' tokamaks are not included in this table because the important parameters are slightly different. There is a separate page on this site for these machines.
