Researchers at PPPL have made simple changes to equations that model the movement of heat in plasma. The changes improve insights that could help engineers avoid the conditions that could lead to heat loss in future fusion facilities.
Super strong and only one atom thick, graphene holds promise as a nanomaterial for everything from microelectronics to clean energy storage. But lack of one property, which PPPL has now overcome, has limited its use.
The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory welcomed its first intern who is part of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Minority Educational Institution Student Partnership Program (MEISPP) this past summer.
Undergraduate engineering and science internships and high school internships at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) offer hands-on experience to undergraduate engineering students and high school students interested in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.
