Newswise: New computer code could reach fusion faster

New computer code could reach fusion faster

Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory

Scientists often make progress by coming up with new ways to look at old problems. That has happened at PPPL, where physicists have used a simple insight to capture the complex effects of many high-frequency waves in a fusion plasma.

Newswise: Powder, not gas: A safer, more effective way to create a star on Earth

Powder, not gas: A safer, more effective way to create a star on Earth

Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory

PPPL scientists have found that sprinkling a type of powder into fusion plasma could aid in harnessing the ultra-hot gas within a tokamak facility to produce heat to create electricity without producing greenhouse gases or long-term radioactive waste.

Batten down the hatches: Preventing heat leaks to help create a star on Earth

Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory

PPPL physicists have identified a method by which instabilities can be tamed and heat can be prevented from leaking from fusion plasma, giving scientists a better grasp on how to optimize conditions for fusion in devices known as tokamaks.
