A nuclear fusion reactor in which a magnetic field keeps charged, hot plasma moving in a doughnut-shaped vacuum container.

Quest, PPPL’s annual research magazine, highlights breakthroughs and discoveries during the past year

Path-setting findings and expansion into exciting new areas mark research at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) during the past year. Quest highlights this progress in brief and easy-to-read pieces that outline research at the only DOE national laboratory devoted to the development of fusion energy and the exploration of plasma — the fourth state of matter that fuels fusion reactions and makes up 99 percent of the visible universe.

Researchers poised to deliver key scientific findings in the fast lane

Streaming data, the online process that brings movies, music and videos instantly into homes, is poised to accelerate the worldwide distribution of scientific discoveries in fusion research. Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have demonstrated the streaming and rapid analysis of findings from a fusion reactor in South Korea to Princeton, New Jersey.
