Understanding Turbulence In Plasmas Leads To Potential Fusion Power Breakthrough
2013-04-29 19:13:22

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Researchers wrote in the journal Physics of Plasmas about experiments that helped reveal details of a cooling process that could potentially bring practical fusion closer. Fusion is the reaction that powers the sun, and a team at MIT´s Plasma Science and Fusion Center (PSFC) says they have taken steps that could potentially help develop fusion power. One reason self-sustaining fusion reactions are a difficult accomplishment...

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...

Alpharetta, GA (PRWEB) December 19, 2012 Fusion Ionz (Formerly Fusion Power Bandz LLC), an international company specializing in negative ion emitting bracelets, has announced the launch of their new bracelet line, Fusion Ionz Sport. "The positive reception has been overwhelming. We took great care to improve the design and it looks like we have hit the mark" said Matt Ryncarz Fusion Ionz Founder and CEO. The brand...

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...

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ITER (meaning "the way" in Latin), a global organization of the European Union, China, Russia, Japan, India, South Korea and the United States, currently is building the world's largest and most advanced experimental nuclear fusion reactor in Cadarache, France, has selected Intergraph's SmartPlant(®) Enterprise suite of products to handle the assembly, commissioning and construction of the plant, as well as its operations...

Sandia Nuclear Fusion Concept Undergoes Dry-Run Testing
2012-09-18 10:11:04

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers at the Sandia National Laboratories have completed successful preliminary tests on magnetically imploded tubes called liners, which are intended to help produce controlled nuclear fusion at scientific "break-even" energies or better within the next few years. The results of this research will be published in Physical Review Letters (PRL). Scientific break-even is one of the major performance measurements in fusion energy...

Researchers at a recent worldwide conference on fusion power have confirmed the surprising accuracy of a new model for predicting the size of a key barrier to fusion that a top scientist at the U.S. Department of Energy´s Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) has developed. The model could serve as a starting point for overcoming the barrier. “This allows you to depict the size of the challenge so you can think through what needs to be done to overcome it,” said...

Solar Radiation -- Solar radiation is radiant energy emitted by the sun due to nuclear fusion reactions. Fusion is the process whereby stars produce huge quantities of energy from the fusion of hydrogen or helium, in one of the most efficient processes of energy generation. The radiation referred to is usually electromagnetic energy, particularly infrared radiation, visible light, and ultraviolet. Some stars are known to emit radiation of other wavelengths. Solar neutrinos are a...
