New and Improved Model of Molecular Bonding from Researchers at Berkeley Lab’s Molecular Foundry
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 first controlled studies of extremely hot, dense matter have overthrown the widely accepted 50-year old model used to explain how ions influence each other's behavior in a dense plasma.
Berkeley Lab technology could open door to more widespread solar energy devices
