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

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.
