General Atomics Fusion Energy Studies Report Heat Burst Breakthrough; Mickey Wade Comments

General AtomicsTYSONS CORNER, VA March 30, 2015 — Executive Mosaic — ExecutiveBiz reported Friday on recent findings from General Atomic’s joint research with the Energy Department regarding fusion energy heat bursts.

According to the company, new evidence indicates that it may be possible to manipulate magnetic fields to prevent or control heat bursts, or edge-localized modes, that are known to cause disruption and instability at fusion reactors.

“The identification of the physical processes that lead to ELM suppression when applying a small 3D magnetic field to the inherently 2D tokamak field provides new confidence that such a technique can be optimized in eliminating ELMs in ITER and future fusion devices, ” said Mickey Wade, program director at the General Atomics-run DIII-D National Fusion Facility in San Diego.
