New Turbulent Transport Modeling Shows Multiscale Fluctuations in Heated Plasma

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

Researchers at the DIII-D National Fusion Facility used a “reduced physics” fluid model of plasma turbulence to explain unexpected properties of the density profile inside a tokamak experiment. Modeling plasma’s turbulent behavior could help scientists optimize the tokamak performance in future fusion reactors like ITER. They discuss their findings in this week’s Physics of Plasmas.

Smooth Sailing: PPPL Develops an Integrated Approach to Understand How to Better Control Plasma Instabilities

Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory

PPPL physicist Francesca Poli and coauthors recently published findings that describe an approach that for the first time simultaneously simulates the plasma, the magnetic islands, and the feedback control from waves that provide so-called electron cyclotron heating and current drive.
