A Summer at PPPL

I’ve got a job. My first job. And it is freaking awesome. Well, it’s kind of a job. Technically it’s a paid internship, but I guess there’s really not that much of a difference. Anyway, I’m being paid to research at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory. I’m working on developing technology that will allow tokamak reactors to have liquid lithium flow over the inside wall of the reactor without the reactor breaking. (For the physics nerds, the lithium chemically captures low energy hydrogen that has escaped confinement and pumps it out of the system. This prevent the low energy hydrogen from re-enetering the high energy plasma and lowering it’s temperature.)

It’s not quite the plasma physics I was hoping to do when I came here, more of mechanical engineering and materials science, but hey, I’m still as happy as can be, curious, and excited.

How cool is that?

  1. Excelente ejemplo de admiración, eres un joven bastante inquieto por el conocimiento, te invito a que investigues sobre el reactor de plasma de keshe, parece prometedor a la solución energética mundial, sin embargo tengo dudas de este si funciona realmente por el punto de vista de su creador de como ve la materia desde otra perspectiva polémica, tú si embargo, eres bastante piloso para detectar fanfarrones si de eso se trata.
