A Collaborative National Center for Fusion & Plasma Research

Research & Review Seminars

RESEARCH & REVIEW SEMINARS- Fridays @10 am in T169, Theory Conference Room

The goals of these seminars are to prepare for upcoming review of 5 year research plan of the Theory Department, update the PPPL Theory Department on progress of individual research and future plans, and disseminate this information broadly throughout the department.
