PPPL scientists present cutting-edge results at major physics meeting
More than 1,500 researchers, including scientists from the U.S. Department of Energy’s Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), have gathered in Denver, Colorado, for the 55th Annual Meeting of the American Physical Society’s (APS) Division of Plasma Physics (DPP). The five-day conference concludes Nov. 15. While there, they will attend nine half-day sessions covering topics ranging from the challenges of producing a fusion reaction to the mysteries of plasma, an ionized gas that composes most of the matter in the universe.
PPPL scientists will present a host of cutting edge results at the conference from their latest experiments and theoretical advances in fusion and plasma science. Some of them are listed here:
- Bring a 50,000-degree Plasma into Your Living Room
- Using Airport Screening Technology to Visualize Waves in Fusion Plasma
- Riding an Electron Wave into the Future of Microchip Fabrication
- Building a Better Tokamak by Blowing Giant Plasma Bubbles
- Fusion Foe Lends a Helping Hand
- Hot Lithium Vapors Shield Fusion Facility Walls
The APS is a non-profit membership organization working to advance knowledge of physics through research journals, scientific meetings, and education, outreach, advocacy and international activities. APS represents over 50,000 members, including physicists in academia, national laboratories and industry in the United States and throughout the world. DPP was established in 1959, with its first elected chair the late Melvin B. Gottlieb, a former director of PPPL.
