Quality:  the characteristics of a product or service that bear on its ability to satisfy stated or implied needs.

Quality Assurance:  the planned and systematic activities implemented to provide confidence that a product or service will fulfill its requirements for quality.

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

John DeLooper has more than 40 years of experience in quality, environment, safety, health, security and emer- gency preparedness management. He is the Head of Best Practices and Outreach at PPPL. As part of his responsibilities he regularly talks to students and visitors to the Laboratory regarding fusion energy and plasma science. Prior to his employment at Princeton, he was employed by Burns and Roe, an architect/engineer for large power plants.

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.
