Princeton Department of Public Safety among the first to deploy new 911 technology

Princeton University’s Department of Public Safety will be among the first emergency dispatch centers across the country to receive precise location data for 911 mobile calls placed within its jurisdiction. For nearly a year, the department has been involved in beta testing and development for RapidSOS NG911, an Internet Protocol-based system that gives emergency responders rich data about 911 callers. Apple announced June 18 that it is partnering with RapidSOS, an emergency communications startup, to provide accurate location information to emergency dispatchers receiving 911 calls from iPhones. “Since August of 2017, the emergency call management system at Public Safety has been integrated with the…

PPPL New insights into the science of fusion energy that powers the sun and stars

Princeton, NJ:  By John Greenwald - Throughout 2017 researchers at the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) have produced new insights into the science of fusion energy that powers the sun and stars and the physics of plasma, the hot, charged state of matter that consists of electrons and atomic nuclei, or ions, and makes up 99 percent of the visible universe. The research advances the development of fusion as a safe, clean and plentiful source of power, produced in doughnut-shaped facilities called tokamaks, and explores the diverse aspects and applications of plasma. The findings range from a…

Artificial intelligence helps accelerate progress toward efficient fusion reactions

Image of plasma disruption in experiment on JET, left, and disruption-free experiment on JET, right. Training the FRNN neural network to predict disruptions calls for assigning weights to the data flow along the connections between nodes. Princeton, NJ: By John Greenwald December 14, 2017. Before scientists can effectively capture and deploy fusion energy, they must learn to predict major disruptions that can halt fusion reactions and damage the walls of doughnut-shaped fusion devices called tokamaks. Timely prediction of disruptions, the sudden loss of control of the hot, charged plasma that fuels the reactions, will be vital to triggering steps to…

PPPL scientists deliver new high-resolution diagnostic to national laser facility

Princeton, NJ: By Raphael Rosen November 21, 2017 - Scientists from the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) have built and delivered a high-resolution X-ray spectrometer for the largest and most powerful laser facility in the world. The diagnostic, installed on the National Ignition Facility (NIF) at the DOE’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, will analyze and record data from high-energy density experiments created by firing NIF’s 192 lasers at tiny pellets of fuel. Such experiments are relevant to projects that include the Stockpile Stewardship Program, which maintains the nuclear deterrent without full-scale testing, and to inertial confinement…
