Energy and Climate


Sandia–UC Davis Collaboration Funded by DOE Office of Fusion Energy

Sandian Dean Buchenauer (in Sandia’s Hydrogen and Metallurgy Science Dept.) and Professor David Q. Hwang (UC Davis, School of Engineering) will investigate the formation and transport of compact toroids, which are donut-shaped bundles of energetic plasma. The newly funded research project will develop the means to quickly inject compact toroids whenever a disruptive instability occurs […]

The Fusion Energy Sciences (FES) program is the national basic-research effort in advance plasma science, fusion science, and fusion technology—the knowledge base needed for an economically and environmentally attractive fusion energy source. As a major contributor to this effort, Sandia’s Fusion Technology Program studies the interactions of plasmas and materials, the behavior of materials exposed […]
