COLLOQUIUM: Wendelstein 7-X: Highlights from the First Operational Phase of the New Optimized Stellarator
On December 10, 2015, the superconducting optimised stellarator “Wendelstein 7-X” was switched on and created its first plasma. Over the ten-week commissioning phase that followed, a wealth of data was collected and the first experiments conducted. In this presentation, some highlights of the plasma physics program, including some unexpected results, will be reported and the performance and capabilities of the new machine will be summarized. Finally, plans for the future of the device and progress towards steady-state operation will be outlined.
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.
