Embargoed news release reports discovery of important new method for reducing instabilities in fusion plasmas without triggering fresh instabilities that can damage a fusion facility’s walls.
Graduate physics students from across the country recently descended on PPPL for the first PPPL Graduate Summer School — a series of lectures the week of Aug. 13 on topics in the field of plasma physics and an opportunity to meet other students with similar research interests.
Piece describes selection of deep learning system for predicting fusion disruptions as one of 10 Aurora Early Science exascale projects.
Article announces William Tang’s NVIDIA award.
Feature describes use of PPPL-provided trim coils to correct W7-X error fields during fusion experiments.
Article describes use of new diagnostics to advance understanding of the plasma nanosynthesis of widely used nanoparticles.
Scientists at PPPL have discovered key conditions that give rise to fast magnetic reconnection, the process that triggers solar flares, auroras, and geomagnetic storms that can disrupt signal transmissions and other electrical activities, including cell phone service.
Theoretical physicist Elena Belova named to editorial board of Physics of Plasmas
Article describes method of preventing plasma from causing short circuits in machines such as spacecraft thrusters.
Article describes development of deep learning neural network to predict disruptions of fusion plasma.
Feature describes supercomputer allocations of 210 million core hours to PPPL physicists.
Scientists from the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory have built and delivered a high-resolution X-ray spectrometer for the largest and most powerful laser facility in the world.
Article describes PPPL’s presentation of 2017 Kaul Prize and Distinguished Engineering Fellow awards.
A team of researchers led by PPPL physicist Will Fox recently used lasers to create conditions that mimic astrophysical behavior. The laboratory technique enables the study of outer-space-like plasma in a controlled and reproducible environment.
