A Wandering Path to Plasma Fusion [Applied Physics/Physics Colloquium]

Topic: 
A Wandering Path to Plasma Fusion
Tuesday, October 3, 2017 - 4:15pm
Venue: 
Hewlett 200
Speaker: 
Ted Baltz (Google)
Abstract / Description: 

 The speaker recounts an unconventional journey through academic physics and the tech industry, beginning and ending with the study of plasma fusion. Over the past three years, a team at Google has collaborated with Tri Alpha Energy in applying modern data science techniques, in particular in experiment design, to the C-2U plasma confinement machine. The collaboration continues on the much more energetic "Norman" machine, being commissioned now.


 

 

APPLIED PHYSICS/PHYSICS COLLOQUIUM is held Tuesdays at 4:30 pm in the William R. Hewlett Teaching Center, room 200 (see map). Refreshments in the lobby of Varian Physics at 4:15 pm.

Autumn 2017/2018, Committee: Roger Blandford (Chair), Aharon Kapitulnik, Bob Laughlin, Leonardo Senatore
