PPPL physicist receives funding to research improvements to unique fusion device

Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory physicist Sam Cohen will receive funding from a U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) award to his collaborator to upgrade and operate his Princeton Field Reversed Configuration device, the PFRC-2. The data produced could allow the design of future devices that might one day be used as a portable generator. 

Cohen will receive $700,000 from a $1.25 million award from the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) to Princeton Fusion Systems, which is working with Cohen on development of the device. 

PPPL inventions take the spotlight at Technology Showcase

A  day-long Technology Showcase spotlighting the unique research, technical expertise, and inventions that the U.S. Department of Energy’s Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory offers to collaborators and funders attracted a wide range of potential partners.   

The Dec. 18 event highlighted several PPPL inventions and cutting-edge technologies. These included low-temperature plasma research and applications such as plasma nanosynthesis, the production of nanoparticles with plasma, as well as PPPL’s engineering capabilities in areas such as machine learning and computer simulations.
