Fusion Theory




Group T-15 does theory needed for the computer simulation for a number of situations where plasma physics and the equations of electrodynamics dominate. A major direction of T-15 is a response to the national Fusion Energy Program and processes in Tokamaks and other fusion devices. Contributes to nuclear science, plasma and beams as well as other novel applications of plasma theory ranging from space plasmas to novel concepts for fusion power generators are also studied in this group. Present studies are focused on tokomak disruptions which is a major plasma/materials issue facing the program. Work is also being done on a small, novel fusion concept based on a Penning trap.
