Our first band of holiday visitors have arrived. Follow along as the Extraordinary League of Fusioneers (E.L.F.) check-in on all our DIII-D vent projects.
30-second video of the induction brazing process used to join sections of our Internal Coil (I-coil). Watch as it heats up (red hot!) and the joint material melts to create an air-tight and super strong bond. The inner conductor of this coil will pass 7,000 amps of current.
The red carpet is out! This is the entrance to DIII-D during our 6-month vent period. Team members are climbing into (and out of) this entry to perform maintenance and upgrade work inside the tokamak. If it’s broken, we’re fixing it. If it doesn’t exist, we’re building it.
Wait, wait, wait… I can drag emails and drop them in the calendar to create events? I’m honestly impressed by this, though a little ashamed to admit it 😀
Excited to welcome Elizabeth Rose Starling to DIII-D as our first Outreach Coordinator! Elizabeth’s Ph.D. work improved the newest muon detectors of the CMS at the Large Hadron Collider. At DIII-D, she leads our efforts to communicate progress in fusion energy development ☀️
If you’re driving anywhere between San Diego and Houston this week, then keep an eye out for the most powerful magnet in the world. It should be pretty easy to spot. 🧲 🚚
