CER researchers awarded a three year DOE grant of $2.4M for studies of magnetic confinement in tokamaks

9 January 2007

The UCSD DIII-D Collaboration, led by Dr. Richard Moyer, Dr. Jose Boedo, and Professor George Tynan, was recently awarded a $2.4M three year grant to study the physics behavior of the boundary region of hot fusion grade plasmas that will be encountered in ITER - the world's first burning plasma experiments. Studies focus on the turbulent transport of particles, momentum, and heat in the edge plasma region, control of undesirable edge plasma oscillations, and avoidance, detection, and control of off-normal plasma termination events known as disruptions.
