PPPL researchers have repurposed a 45-year- old set of magnets to test the design of a spectrometer for ITER, the international tokamak under construction in France. The spectrometer will operate in a magnetic field that is 32 times higher than anything the design, which is used worldwide, has experienced before. Researchers have mounted the spectrometer in the bore of the magnets to see if it can survive the higher fields.

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) have challenged understanding of a key element in fusion plasmas. At issue has been an accurate prediction of the size of the “bootstrap current” — a self-generating electric current — and an ...
