Story Tips from the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory, December 2019

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

An additively manufactured polymer layer applied to specialized plastic proved effective to protect aircraft from lightning strikes in lab test; injecting shattered argon pellets into a super-hot plasma, when needed, could protect a fusion reactor’s interior wall from runaway electrons; ORNL will celebrate the life and legacy of Dr. Liane Russell on December 20.

Blowing bubbles: PPPL scientist confirms novel way to launch and drive current in fusion plasmas

Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory

PPPL physicist Fatima Ebrahimi has used high-resolution computer simulations to confirm the practicality of the CHI start-up technique. The simulations show that CHI could produce electric current continuously in larger, more powerful tokamaks than exist today to produce stable fusion plasmas.

Newswise: 3D-Printed Plastics With High Performance Electrical Circuits

3D-Printed Plastics With High Performance Electrical Circuits

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Rutgers engineers have embedded high performance electrical circuits inside 3D-printed plastics, which could lead to smaller and versatile drones and better-performing small satellites, biomedical implants and smart structures. They used pulses of high-energy light to fuse tiny silver wires, resulting in circuits that conduct 10 times more electricity than the state of the art, according to a study in the journal Additive Manufacturing. By increasing conductivity 10-fold, the engineers can reduce energy use, extend the life of devices and increase their performance.
