COLLOQUIUM: Assessing First Wall Materials at the Atomic Scale and Energy Writ Large at Princeton
Quantum mechanics based computer simulations can help provide insights into the survivability of first wall and divertor materials. I will present results of research aimed at assessing how hydrogen isotopes interact with solid tungsten and liquid lithium, candidates for plasma facing components of fusion reactors. An overview of Princeton University's Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment will also be provided. It is my hope that the Princeton Plasma Physics Lab and the Andlinger Center will partner increasingly in the years ahead to make fusion power a reality.
The Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory 2016-2017 Colloquium Committee is comprised of the following people. Please feel free to contact them by e-mail regarding any possible speakers or topics for future colloquia.
