New Simulations Confirm Efficiency of Waste-removal Process in Plasma DeviceExternal link

Just as fire produces ash, the combining of light elements in fusion reactions can produce material that eventually interferes with those same reactions. Now, scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) have found evidence suggesting that a process could remove the unwanted material and make the fusion processes more efficient within a type of fusion facility known as a field-reversed configuration (FRC) device.

Making a Movie of Nanocrystals' Structural EvolutionExternal link

Combined ultrafast snapshots suggest that the crystal symmetry of copper sulfide nanocrystals changes due to interactions between electrons and atoms vibrating in the crystal lattice—an understanding of which could help scientists optimize the functionality of superconductors, magnetic materials, and other strongly correlated systems.
