Hi.. We use 3 main methods to get the temperature nice and hot! :
1. The plasma can conduct electricity, like a copper wire. When you put an electrical current through a wire, it gets hot. The same is true for a plasma!
2. We can send microwaves into the plasma, a lot like the microwaves in your microwave oven at home!
3. We can fire a high energy beam of particles into the plasma. As these particles collide with the particles inside the reactor, they transfer there energy and heat the plasma particles up.
Hope that answers your question! 🙂
