Supercomputing aids experiments in sorting out the hidden mechanics of magnetic field reconnection, a key factor in solar storms and fusion energy reactors.
Projects in self-assembly and fusion drive a couple’s early career research.
A wide array of supercomputer models is helping realize the promise of fusion energy.
Scientists studying the complex, blindingly fast reactions behind fusion energy are clamoring for more powerful machines.
Huge simulations are illuminating one of the mysteries of fusion energy: how conditions on the edge of a super-hot plasma cloud influence events in the cloud core.
High-temperature plasmas important in fusion are difficult to measure experimentally. Researchers are turning to computer simulations to study fusion.
What happens when hydrogen pellets frozen to near absolute zero are shot into a plasma more than six times hotter than the sun?
Big computers are needed to run fusion energy reactor models.
