Compressing turbulence to improve inertial confinement fusion experiments (PRL)

By John Greenwald, Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory Physicists have long regarded plasma turbulence as unruly behavior that can limit the performance of fusion experiments. But new findings by researchers associated with the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) and the Department of Astrophysical Sciences at Princeton University indicate that turbulent swirls … Continue reading Compressing turbulence to improve inertial confinement fusion experiments (PRL)
