Nuclear Reactions in Magnetically Confined Plasmas

Jan. 15, 2016, 1:30pm-2:30pm, CP 197

Professor Werner U. Boeglin Physics, FIU

High temperature plasmas can be confined with magnetic fields to such a degree that thermo-nuclear fusion reactions can occur. Future machines such as ITER will be able to explore new plasma regimes where a large fraction of the required heating power is provided by nuclear reaction products such as alpha particles (burning plasma). Nuclear reaction products can also be used to probe the hottest part of fusion plasmas and give information on the state of the plasma. After an overview of requirements for fusion reactions and magnetic confinement, recent results from a prototype proton diagnostic will be presented.
