Researchers find injecting tiny grains of lithium improves performance of #fusion plasmas

Researchers find injecting tiny grains of lithium improves performance of fusion plasmas 25 May 2015 Scientists from General Atomics and the US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), together with a team of researchers from across the United States, have found that upon injecting tiny grains of lithium into a plasma undergoing a particular kind of turbulence under the right conditions, the temperature and pressure rose dramatically. The finding may quicken the development of fusion energy. High heat and pressure are crucial to fusion, a process in which atomic nuclei—or ions—smash together and release energy; this makes even a brief rise in pressure of great importance for the development of fusion energy. The scientists used a device developed at PPPL to inject grains of lithium measuring some 45 millionths of a meter in diameter into a p...
