The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory celebrated America Recycles Day this week after recently winning a state Recycling Leadership Award for its recycling and sustainability programs.
Rob Sheneman, a 27-year employee of PPPL who was deputy director of Environment, Safety & Health and head of Environmental Services, has been named head of the department.
The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory announced that accomplished engineer Ruben Fair, has been named head of the ITER Department, heading PPPL’s ITER Team, which is focused on the design and fabrication of six diagnostics for the international fusion experiment.
PPPL physicist Erik Gilson, a long-time Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship mentor, joins U.S. Secretary of Energy Jannifer Grandholm and other mentors and former interns on a panel discussion about the U.S. Department of Energy’s internship programs
The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory’s first two GEM fellows have begun a summer of research at PPPL. Promise Adebayo-Ige is working toward a Ph.D. in nuclear engineering at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville while Caira Anderson is a doctoral student in computational and applied mathematics at Rice University. PPPL recently joined the GEM Consortium as part of its effort to diversify its staff and broaden outreach.
A team used two DOE supercomputers to complete simulations of the full-power ITER fusion device and found that the component that removes exhaust heat from ITER may be more likely to maintain its integrity than was predicted by the current trend of fusion devices.
PPPL physicist Sam Cohen will receive an Edison Award for his invention with collaborators of a compact rocket engine thruster propelled by a small fusion reactor.
The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory has appointed David Graves, an internationally known chemical engineer, to head a new research enterprise that will explore plasma applications in semiconductor manufacturing and the next generation of super-fast quantum computers.
