Plainsboro, New Jersey — Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) have designed and delivered a crucial component for a device that can heat a spot of foil to 30,000 degrees Centigrade in less than a billionth of a second. The part will complete a linear accelerator that researchers at the E.O. Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory are using to create a superheated state called “warm dense matter.”
PLAINSBORO, N.J. — New Jersey Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno visited the U.S. Department of Energy’s Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) on Monday, Feb. 13, learning about the economic impact of the facility upon the state and gleaning new facts about fusion science. After concluding a tour of the National Laboratory, Guadagno characterized it as being one of the state’s "crown jewels."
The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) is getting an earlier-than-expected start on a $94 million, nearly three-year project as the next stage of its mission to chart an attractive course for the development of nuclear fusion as a clean, safe and abundant fuel for generating electricity.
An instrument developed by researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) has enabled a research team at a fusion energy experiment in China to observe--in startling detail--how a particular type of electromagnetic wave known as a radiofrequency (RF) wave affects the behavior of hot ionized gas.
Researchers working on an advanced experimental fusion reactor are readying experiments that will investigate a host of scientific puzzles, including how heat escapes as hot magnetized plasma, and what materials are best for handling intense plasma powers.
