Machine learning speeds modeling of experiments aimed at capturing fusion energy on Earth

Department of Energy national laboratory PPPL John Greenwald reports May 17, 2019. Princeton Strong News - Princeton, NJ: Machine learning (ML), a form of artificial intelligence that recognizes faces, understands language and navigates self-driving cars, can help bring to Earth the clean fusion energy that lights the sun and stars. Researchers at the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) are using ML to create a model for rapid control of plasma — the state of matter composed of free electrons and atomic nuclei, or ions — that fuels fusion reactions. The sun and most stars are giant balls…

New technique merging sound and math could help prevent plasma disruptions in fusion facilities

Department of Energy national laboratory PPPL Raphael Rosen reports May 13, 2019. Princeton Strong News - Princeton, NJ: Scientists have created a novel method for measuring the stability of a soup of ultra-hot and electrically charged atomic particles, or plasma, in fusion facilities called “tokamaks.” Involving an innovative use of a mathematical tool, the method might lead to a technique for stabilizing plasma and making fusion reactions more efficient. The technique, which has been demonstrated on tokamaks in the United States, China, and South Korea, could in theory help stabilize the plasma in ITER, a multinational fusion facility being built in…
