ARC stands for \u201caffordable, robust, compact.\u201d The design is a fusion reactor that's based on the tokamak, using magnetic fields to contain plasma at a high enough temperature (tens to hundreds of millions of degrees Celsius) to maintain the conditions necessary for fusion.Aug 11, 2015');})();(function(){window.jsl.dh('_4VVpYN-oPLfM0PEPz8aT6A496','
The Stark Arc Reactor is most likely a Multi-Isotope Radio-Decay Cell. ... This type of fusion reactor exists today at research pilot scale. The reactor pictured, ITER, is under construction and is planned to be the first fusion reactor large enough to produce a net gain of energy.Jun 18, 2013

The circular part of the Arc Reactor tells us that there are highly energized particles moving in a circular path due to magnetic field acting upon them,and thus generating energy through collisions, much like how the Large Hadron Collider works in real life.Dec 4, 2017

Which means the arc reactor produces electricity directly, rather than by first generating heat. This observation jives with the fact that the megawatt-scale reactor in Tony's chest does not roast him alive. So it cannot be a hot-fusion reactor, or a traditional thermal-fission reactor.
