Latest Fusion power Stories
SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Super Micro Computer, Inc.
Researchers at the University of Warwickâ€™s Centre for Fusion Space and Astrophysics and the UK Atomic Energy Authorityâ€™s Culham Centre for Fusion Energy may have found a way to channel the flux and fury of a nuclear fusion plasma into a means to help sustain the electric current needed to contain that very same fusion plasma.
A new X-ray imaging capability has taken pictures of a critical instability at the heart of Sandia's huge Z accelerator.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory researchers Jeremy Busby, De-en Jiang and Sergei Kalinin are among 13 Department of Energy scientists to receive the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers, or PECASE. The PECASE, one of the nation's top honors for young scientists, was designed to recognize some of the finest researchers who show exceptional potential for leadership at the frontiers of scientific knowledge. "Science and technology have long been at the core of America's...
Researchers at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory have successfully used Coaxial Helicity Injection (CHI) to generate plasma current and couple it to a conventional current generation method at the National Spherical Torus Experiment (NSTX) fusion experiment.
Fusion plasmas in the laboratory typically reach 100 million degrees.
Physicists working on the National Spherical Torus Experiment (NSTX) at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory are now one step closer to solving one of the grand challenges of magnetic fusion researchâ€”how to reduce the effect that the hot plasma has on fusion machine walls (or how to tame the plasma-material interface).
Whenever two pieces of metal at different voltages are brought near each other, as when an appliance is plugged into a live socket, there is a chance there will be an arc between them.
NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa., Oct. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- National Ignition Facility (NIF), a project sponsored by the U.S.
Researchers have discovered mechanisms critical to interactions between hot plasma and surfaces facing the plasma inside a thermonuclear fusion reactor, part of work aimed at developing coatings capable of withstanding the grueling conditions inside the reactors.
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...
