45th Annual Meeting of the Division of Plasma Physics
Application of ergodic magnetic field suppresses ELMs.
In work that makes practical, large-scale fusion energy production increasingly feasible, plasma physicists working at DOEs DIII-D National Fusion Facility in San Diego are using a little chaos to prevent precious energy from escaping fusion energy devices.
In a magnetic fusion device, or tokamak, one of the most crucial regions for reducing the loss of heat and particles is at the plasma regions edge. Particle crossing this edge leave the plasma, and carry energy with them, degrading the fusion reactors walls, and making it harder for the desired fusion energy production to occur. This problem will only increase for next-generation fusion energy machines such as the proposed ITER facility.
