Controlling Plasma To Revolutionize Energy Generation And Storage
2013-04-17 05:22:12

[ Watch the Video: Plasma Device Could Revolutionize Energy Generation ] redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Scientists at the University of Missouri have devised a new way to create and control plasma that could transform American energy generation and storage. Randy Curry, professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Missouri's College of Engineering, and his team developed a device that launches a ring of plasma at distances of up...

To Mars In A Month With The Help Of Nuclear Fusion
2013-04-09 19:22:32

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online There are many who would like to one day go to Mars. This list of willing candidates likely dries up when asked to dedicate a total of four years to the trip. The Inspiration Mars Foundation, on the other hand, believes they can shoot a couple around the Red Planet and back again in just over 500 days. Now, researchers at the University of Washington aim to make the trip in even less time — somewhere around 30 days, to...

NRL Nike Laser Focuses On Nuclear Fusion
2013-03-20 15:20:24

U.S. Naval Research Laboratory Researchers at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory have successfully demonstrated pulse tailoring, producing a time varying focal spot size known as 'focal zooming' on the world's largest operating krypton fluoride (KrF) gas laser. The Nike laser is a two to three kilojoule (kJ) KrF system that incorporates beam smoothing by induced spatial incoherence (ISI) to achieve one percent non-uniformity in single beams and 0.16 percent non-uniformity for 44...

Potential benefits of inertial fusion energy justify continued R&D; nationally coordinated program should wait until ignition is achieved The potential benefits of successful development of an inertial confinement fusion-based energy technology justify investment in fusion energy research and development as part of the long-term U.S. energy R&D portfolio, says a new report from the National Research Council. Although ignition of the fusion fuel has not yet been achieved, scientific...

Graphite Experiment Leads To Unexpected Results
2012-11-29 06:26:14

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists from the University of Warwick and Oxford University have come up with unexpected results in an experiment with strongly heated graphite, posing a new problem for physicists working in laser-driven nuclear fusion. The research may lead astrophysicists to revise the understanding of the life cycle of giant planets and stars. The team was attempting to gain a better understanding about how energy is shared between the...

Mug Handles May Help Hot Plasma Give Cheaper, Controllable Fusion Energy
2012-10-12 09:28:09

Researchers around the world are working on an efficient, reliable way to contain the plasma used in fusion reactors, potentially bringing down the cost of this promising but technically elusive energy source. A new finding from the University of Washington could help contain and stabilize the plasma using as little as 1 percent of the energy required by current methods. “All of a sudden the current energy goes from being almost too much to almost negligible,” said lead author...

Igor Yevgenyevich Tamm born in Vladivostok, Russia on July 8, 1895 was a Soviet physicist and mathematician. He studied at the University of Edinburgh in 1913-1914. He then switched to Moscow State University where he graduated in 1918. He developed an approximation method for many-body physics, in 1945. He worked with Andrei Dmitrievich Sakharov to create a tomohak system based on a toroidal magnetic thermonuclear reactor, in 1958. This led to the T-3 Soviet magnetic confinement...
