Tore Supra image
Tore Supra was the first large tokamak to employ superconducting magnets.

The machine was operational from 1988-2010 with niobium-titanium conductors for the toroidal coils, designed with a maximum field in the coils of 9T.

Tore Supra held for a long time the record for the longest stored plasma at 6.5 minutes.
