Turbulence stabilisation in stellarators
Research report (imported) 2019 - Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik
One of the greatest tasks of fusion research is to confine the hot fuel with good heat insulation. Energy losses, in particular due to turbulence, must remain as small as possible. In the Wendelstein 7-X stellarator, by injecting pellets made of frozen hydrogen a plasma state with low turbulence could be achieved.
