# How to make a small tokamak?

$\require{mhchem}$I made a fusor once, like the easy science project: deuterium-deuterium ones, but they're really inefficient. I was wondering if it would be possible to make a small tokamak; not one that will make a ton of power, but I just want to make one for the sake of making one, like a tokamak the size of a pizza box. What materials would I need and how would I go about assembling it? Assume it is deuterium-deuterium or $\ce{p-^11B}$ fusion, maybe $\ce{^3He-^3He}$.

Oxford University has a tokamak. –  JoeHobbit Jun 24 '11 at 3:36
have you looked at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tokamak ? –  anna v Jun 24 '11 at 11:23

A small tokamak is inefficient.

The following quote from here http://www.jet.efda.org/faq/about-tokamaks:

Creating smaller reactors would be very good, but the confinement of plasma particles gets worse as the plasma gets smaller (and good confinement is required for effective fusion).
