The two awards will enable physicists to use lasers to reproduce high-energy astrophysical plasmas under extreme conditions to probe processes such as space storms that can disrupt cell phone service.
Summer interns working for PPPL did hands-on research from their computers in their bedrooms or on their dining room tables all over the U.S. They worked closely with PPPL physicists and engineers on research aimed at understanding ionized gases called plasmas.
Article profiles 47-year tenure and ground-breaking contributions of a distinguished theoretical physicist.
This new program will allow undergraduates to conduct research in a wide range of plasma physics topics, including fusion energy, general plasma science, astrophysical plasmas, and accelerator physics.
Release on the publication of PPPL's annual Quest magazine features achievements of the laboratory over the past year.
An intern about to start a Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI) at PPPL and another University of Texas-Dallas student kicked off their summer with a friendly online chat with U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm about their plans for the summer.
A profile of scientific essays and a new forward to Vannevar Bush's 1945 landmark "Science The Endless Frontier," together with interviews with the authors.
New Princeton Princeton Collaborative Low Temperature Plasma Research Facility at PPPL provides access to world-class diagnostics, computational tools, and expertise in plasma physics for characterizing low temperature plasmas (LTP) -- a rapidly expanding source of innovation.
Theoretcal and experimental physicists at PPPL honored for standout research in 2020.
