NSTX upgrade underway at PPPL.
The upgrade "will provide a huge boost to all NSTX science missions and enhance U.S. fusion research capability," said Stewart Prager, director of PPPL. Experiments done on NSTX, he said, "will establish the physics basis to determine next steps in fusion research and development." PPPL physicists will use the upgraded NSTX facility to assess the role of more compact tokamak configurations.
