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.

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.

Living on the edge

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.

Richard Hawryluk, a senior scientist at the DOE Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), has been appointed deputy director-general of the ITER Organization and director of its administration department. The ITER project, currently under construction in France, aims to demonstrate that fusion is an energy source of the future.
“Rich Hawryluk was the deputy director of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory and has made an outstanding career in the field of fusion research,” said ITER Director-General Osamu Motojima.
