New Technique Could Streamline Design of Intricate Fusion Device

Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory

Stellarators, twisty machines that house fusion reactions, rely on complex magnetic coils that are challenging to design and build. Now, a PPPL physicist has developed a mathematical technique to help simplify the design of the coils.

Seeing more clearly: Revised computer code accurately models an instability in fusion plasmas

Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory

Subatomic particles zip around fusion machines known as tokamaks and sometimes merge, releasing large amounts of energy. Now, physicists have confirmed that an updated computer code could help to predict and ultimately prevent the particles from leaking from the magnetic fields confining them.
