Title: Simulation of Fusion Plasmas

The upcoming ITER experiment represents the next major milestone in realizing the promise of using nuclear fusion as a commercial energy source, by moving into the 'burning plasma' regime where the domore »minant heat source is the internal fusion reactions. As part of its support for the ITER mission, the US fusion community is actively developing validated predictive models of the behavior of magnetically confined plasmas. In this talk, I will describe how the plasma community is using the latest high performance computing facilities to develop and refine our models of the nonlinear, multiscale plasma dynamics, and how recent advances in experimental diagnostics are allowing us to directly test and validate these models at an unprecedented level.« less
