Virtual Science Lecture - The Renaissance of the Stellarator Fusion Concept, PPPL

Saturday January 9, 2021
9:30 AM - 11:30 AM

The Ronald E. Hatcher Science on Saturday Lecture Series resumes on Jan. 9 from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. and continues through March 13 on the Zoom virtual meeting platform. Go to PPPL’s Science Education webpage here for the link.

The series kicks off with a lecture on “The Renaissance of the Stellarator Fusion Concept,” by PPPL physicist David Gates, head of Advanced Projects. Stellarators, a type of fusion energy facility that has twisty coils, were invented by PPPL founder Lyman Spitzer in the 1950s. The complex devices have been a less popular choice for fusion experiments than donut-shaped tokamaks but are making a come-back as scientists find new approaches to stellarator design.
