15 PhD Grants from Padova available for students

The University of Padova, a FUSENET member, offers research fellowships for foreign students to attend Doctoral Schools and International Courses. During the 3-year doctoral programme, successful candidates will be offered full board and lodging.

New model estimates width of the scrape-off layer

Prof. Robert Goldston concluded that in H-mode, the motion of ions is dominated by non-turbulent drift effects. He used this knowledge to develop a model for predicting the width of the scrape-off layer in tokamaks.

Dylla on scientific teeth and fusion budgets

The director of the American Institute of Physics wrote an epistle on the advances in Fusion technology and why in times of budgettary constraints, the US and others should nuture large scientific endeavors such as fusion research projects.

F4E releases 2011 Annual Report

On August 8th of 2012 Fusion for Energy, the European organization in charge of procurements and ‘in kind’ contributions to ITER, has released its fourth annual report, summarizing the activities and progress of the year 2011.

Martin Fleischmann has died

Martin Fleischmann has died on August 3, 2012 at the age of 85. Fleischmann and his colleague Stan Pons became famous for their cold fusion claim, now known as the Fleischmann–Pons experiment, but were later heavily criticized as the results could not be reproduced by other leading laboratories such as MIT, Caltech and Harwell.

Innovations for ITER can now come from the scrapyard

A team from the Culham Centre for Fusion Energy (CCFE) has spent the last two years assembling SNIF from second-hand components in a project the programme leader called a ‘scrapyard challenge’. SNIF stands for Small Negative Ion Facility, and was built to study alternatives for Caesium in enhancing negative ion beams for fusion reactors.
