The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) received six Federal Green Challenge regional awards from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for its sustainable practices in reducing waste, energy and water, and transportation, and for green purchasing and electronics recycling.
The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) received the 2019 Business Partner of the Year award from the Mercer County Technical Schools for its new apprenticeship program, which provides paid on-the-job training and free technical courses to train early-career technicians in cutting edge skills.
Mercer County Technical Schools gave the award to PPPL’ers who helped establish the program at an Oct. 30 event at the school.
Timothy Stoltzfus-Dueck, a theoretical physicist at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), has won a DOE Early Career Research Award for exceptional scientists in the early stages of their careers. Stoltzfus-Dueck will use the five-year, approximately $500,000 per year award to develop and test models essential to the confinement of plasma, the hot, charged gas that must be tightly confined in doughnut-shaped devices to produce fusion reactions.
Institutions ranging from NASA to the Korean Physical Society have recently bestowed national and international honors on four scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL). The awards recognize a veteran and three early career physicists for their path-setting achievements in fusion and plasma science research. The honorees and their notable contributions:
Rajesh Maingi named Fellow of the American Nuclear Society
Stuart Hudson, acting head of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory’s Theory Department, visited three national laboratories recently as one of 15 national laboratory leaders from a variety of backgrounds selected for the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Oppenheimer Science and Energy Leadership Program.
Elle Starkman, an award-winning photographer at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) Office of Communications, has received a new honor for a photo of more than 400 people attending a scientific conference at Princeton University.
Physicist Sam Cohen of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) and local company Princeton Satellite Systems have won a Federal Laboratory Consortium award for their joint efforts on a rocket propulsion technology at the Sept. 13 meeting of the Northeast Regional Federal Laboratory Consortium (FLC) at PPPL
The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory has won a national award from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) recognizing the Laboratory’s leadership and continuous improvement in buying sustainable products. It was the fourth award PPPL has received in the past year for its sustainable practices.
Caoxiang Zhu, a postdoctoral researcher at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), has won the 2018 CAI Shidong Award for plasma physics in China. His research describes a computer code that Zhu developed with the help of PPPL physicists that takes a novel approach to designing the complex magnetic coils that confine plasma in fusion devices called stellarators, which are focused on one day creating energy using the process that powers the sun and the stars.
Seth Davidovits, a 2017 graduate of the Program in Plasma Physics in the Princeton University Department of Astrophysical Sciences, has won the 2018 Marshall N. Rosenbluth Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Award presented by the American Physical Society (APS). The award, named for distinguished plasma physicist Marshall Rosenbluth, whose career included 13 years at the U.S.
