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. 🧲 🚚
Today, we complete the DIII-D 2021 experimental campaign! 18 weeks of operation to perform 2,521 plasma shots in support of 72 experiments. Fusion energy research is so much fun 😀 Next week we start a 5-month vent to make upgrades.
Shoutout to my colleagues for shipping a piece of the world’s strongest magnet! Headed to the ITER fusion energy facility. Wrapped unit shipped, next one to go is shown unwrapped.
Every two years, the international fusion energy research community gathers to share results at the IAEA Fusion Energy Conference. For this year’s online-only event, our lab has a video tour! Watch the trailer, or the whole tour.
Learned how to tune decision trees in R (RStudio) with some practice Airbnb data. Image is pruned tree indicating that price for a listing actually decreases as you increase average monthly reviews by customers. Don’t get excited, this model has poor R2.
