The Off-Site University Research Program has access to PPPL's extensive scientific, engineering, technical, and safety capabilities.
In the area of scientific capabilities, PPPL has both experimental and theoretical scientists on staff who can assist college and university projects. The experimental scientists can provide help with plasma diagnostics, heating and fueling of plasmas, and general plasma experimental techniques. The theoretical scientists can assist with basic theory, and plasma computational support, offering expertise in various numerical codes. Summaries of the theoretical and experimental scientific research conducted at PPPL can be viewed on this website under RESEARCH.
With an engineering staff that excels, PPPL can boast of a world-class engineering capabilities, including specialities in mechanical, electrical design, neutral beam, RF, structural magnet, and analysis engineering. Further information about PPPL Engineering capabilities can be found on this website under Engineering.
In addition, PPPL has a safety department that provides oversight of PPPL's research facilities, and work environment. There have also been requests from colleges and universities on safety oversight of their plans for experimental research. A description of the PPPL Environmental, Safety, Health, & Security Department can be found on the website under ENVIRONMENTAL, SAFETY, & HEALTH.
