Fusion Science and Technology Research Program (VLT Programs)

Summary: Fusion Science and Technology Research Program
(VLT Programs)
Mohamed Abdou
Presented to VLT/PAC, December 4, 2000 at UCLA
Plasma and Fusion Science and Technology Research at UCLA
Research Funding
~ $12 million/year
broadly funded by NSF, DOE, NASA, ONR, and USAFOR
Research Programs
UCLA Electric Tokamak: Dr. Robert Taylor, et al.
- Main purpose is to generate near unity beta plasma with greatly improved energy confinement at low
magnetic field
Large Plasma Device (LAPD): Prof. W. Gekelman, Dr. J. Maggs, Prof. G. Morales
- Experimental and theoretical studies of fundamental processes related to naturally occurring plasmas (e.g.
auroral ionosphere, solar corona), particle and heat transport, and structural formation in plasmas.
Computer Simulation of Plasmas: Profs. J. Dawson and W. Mori; Drs. V. Decyk and J. Lebouef
- High performance computing using particle in-cell codes to model plasmas (numerical Tokamak, advanced
accelerators, inertial confinement, plasma space and astrophysics, semi-classical quantum models)
The MARS Laser Laboratory: Prof. C. Joshi, et al.
