New simulations confirm efficiency of waste-removal process in plasma device

Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory

PPPL scientists have found evidence suggesting that a process could remove the unwanted ash produced during fusion reactions and make the fusion processes more efficient within a type of fusion facility known as a field-reversed configuration device.

Separating the Sound from the Noise in Hot Plasma Fusion

American Institute of Physics (AIP)

For fusion power plants to be effective, scientists must find a way to trigger the low-to-high confinement transition, or “L-H transition” for short. Scientists have observed that the L-H transition is always associated with zonal flows of plasma. Theoretically, zonal flows in a plasma consist of both a stationary flow with a near-zero frequency and one that oscillates at a higher frequency called the geodesic acoustic mode. For the first time, researchers have detected GAM at two different points simultaneously within the reactor. This new experimental setup will be a useful diagnostic tool for investigating the physics of zonal flows, and their role in the L-H transition. The researchers report these findings in a new paper published in Physics of Plasmas.
