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.

Any Way the Wind BlowsExternal link

Forecasting the wind for tomorrow is a daily challenge to wind farm operators in places like the Columbia River Gorge in the Pacific Northwest. To more accurately predict wind in complex terrain, researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory partnered in a project called Wind Forecast Improvement Project II (WFIP 2).
