Quality:  the characteristics of a product or service that bear on its ability to satisfy stated or implied needs.

Quality Assurance:  the planned and systematic activities implemented to provide confidence that a product or service will fulfill its requirements for quality.

Scientists improve understanding of plasma source for synthesis of nanomaterial for microchips and numerous products

Researchers have developed an insight that could facilitate production of microscopic carbon nanotubes, structures thousands of times thinner than a human hair used in everything from microchips to sporting goods to pharmaceutical products. The research by scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) could ensure that fabrication forms nanotubes as efficiently as possible.

PPPL researchers successfully test new device that analyzes the surfaces of tokamak components within a vacuum

Physicists at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) have successfully tested a new device that will lead to a better understanding of the interactions between ultrahot plasma contained within fusion facilities and the materials inside those facilities. The measurement tool, known as the Materials Analysis Particle Probe (MAPP), was built by a consortium that includes Princeton University and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (U. of I.).

New CFO arrives at Lab with a wealth of experience

Just a few weeks into her new job as PPPL’s chief financial officer, Kristen Fischer is settling into the challenging job of overseeing a budget of approximately $85 million and managing all financial operations. And she’s bringing her own outgoing style to the task as she forges relationships with people inside and outside of PPPL.

Fischer comes to PPPL after working 16 years at the New Jersey State Office of the Attorney General where she oversaw a $1 billion budget as director of budget and grant operations.
