Virtual Pressroom 2014
56th Annual Meeting of the APS Division of Plasma Physics
October 27-31, 2014 | New Orleans, Louisiana
New Insights into the Physics behind Stormy Space Weather that can Create Havoc on Earth
Earthly experiments are helping scientists probe the physics of plasma in space.
Scratching the surface of a material mystery
Scientists shed new light on how lithium conditions the volatile edge of fusion plasmas.
Using radio waves to control density in fusion plasma
Experiments show how heating the electrons in the center of hot fusion plasma with high power microwaves can increase turbulence, reducing the density in the inner core.
Calming the Plasma Edge: The Tail that Wags the Dog
Lithium injections show promise for optimizing the performance of fusion plasmas.
Laser experiments mimic cosmic explosions and planetary cores
Scientists bring plasma tsunamis and crushing pressures into the lab.
Helping General Electric Upgrade the U.S. Power Grid
PPPL lends GE a hand in developing an advanced power-conversion switch.
