PPPL teams up with USDA to produce new egg pasteurization method

Researchers at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) have developed a novel technique and device for rapidly pasteurizing eggs in the shell without damaging the delicate egg white. The process could lead to a sharp reduction in illnesses caused by egg-borne salmonella bacteria, a widespread public health concern.

New CFO arrives at Lab with a wealth of experience

Just a few weeks into her new job as PPPL’s chief financial officer, Kristen Fischer is settling into the challenging job of overseeing a budget of approximately $85 million and managing all financial operations. And she’s bringing her own outgoing style to the task as she forges relationships with people inside and outside of PPPL.

Fischer comes to PPPL after working 16 years at the New Jersey State Office of the Attorney General where she oversaw a $1 billion budget as director of budget and grant operations.

Plasma meets nano at PPPL

Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) have launched a new effort to apply expertise in plasma to study and optimize the use of the hot, electrically charged gas as a tool for producing nanoparticles. This research aims to advance the understanding of plasma-based synthesis processes, and could lead to new methods for creating high-quality nanomaterials at relatively low cost.

Super Separator

Superior separation of nuclear waste: This advanced centrifuge under development at PPPL can deliver faster, more efficient and more economical separation of nuclear waste than standard centrifuges permit.

John W DeLooper

Helping others comes naturally to John DeLooper. He hung around the Lodi volunteer ambulance corps as a teenager and joined up as soon as he turned 18. He went on to become captain of the Lodi ambulance and rescue squad, which answered some 2,000 emergency calls a year. “I enjoyed helping people in their time of need,” he recalled.

At Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, buying small is a big win

When scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) needed metal flanges for a specialized piece of equipment, Principal Buyer Arlene White could have ordered them from a range of major manufacturers.

Instead, the $150,000 order went to Zenex Precision Products, a small, family-owned machine shop in Paterson, N.J.
