PPPL and other institutions are actively focused on finding ways to recruit diverse students, researchers and engineers into the fusion energy and plasma science fields and make them feel part of an inclusive community in which they are welcomed, able to succeed and remain in the field.
The development of novel technologies to simplify the design and construction of fusion facilities called “stellarators” has brought two new public-private collaborations to the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL).
