Invention sparked by COVID-19 pandemic safely disinfects surfaces continuously

An invention to apply plasma to frequently touched items for continuous disinfection could provide a safe, effective, non-chemical way to reduce pathogens on various surfaces such as keypads, escalator handrails, and other high-touch surfaces, inventors at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) say.

PPPL physicist wins third place at Innovation Forum for advanced liquid centrifuge invention

Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory physicist Erik Gilson won third place at the Princeton University Keller Center’s 15th Annual Innovation Forum for his invention with a team of PPPL researchers of an advanced liquid centrifuge. The centrifuge can separate the components of a liquid for applications such as treating waste water from oil sands processing, fruit juice production, processing ink pigments and for other industrial applications.

Alex Nagy, a “creative and energetic” engineer, is named a Distinguished Engineering Fellow

Alex Nagy, an engineer who for four decades has been working on ways to heat and fuel plasmas in experiments aimed at harnessing the process that powers the sun and stars, was named a Distinguished Engineering Fellow by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) at the State of the Lab address on Dec. 20. 

Nagy was honored for “creative designs of plasma heating and fueling systems employed in fusion devices worldwide.” The fellowship is part of PPPL’s Distinguished Research and Engineering Fellow Program and comes with a cash award.
