Transport and power exhaust in fusion plasmas

​Seminar by Sarah Newton, Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, UK

​Abstract:

Controlled fusion in magnetised plasmas is at the heart of an international effort to deliver clean, sustainable energy.
This talk will summarise contributions, developed from kinetic theory, to the understanding of plasma transport and stability in the core of magnetic confinement devices. Operation of MAST Upgrade at Culham Centre for Fusion Energy is now imminent. With a mission to advance power exhaust, the behaviour of the plasma edge is the focus of current research, which will be briefly outlined.
