From Warzone to Fusion Power: Breakthrough in Cooking Up Plasmas With Microwaves

From Warzone to Fusion Power: Breakthrough in Cooking Up Plasmas With Microwaves thumbnail

Plasma physicists from Ukraine, Germany and Japan collaborate to spark fusion power.

Despite being forced to evacuate the Kharkiv Institute of Physics and Technology due to the Russia-Ukraine war, lead author Yurii Victorovich Kovtun has collaborated with Kyoto University to create stable plasmas using microwaves. Plasmas must be maintained at the correct density, temperature, and duration for nuclear fusion to occur. The research team, including the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics, has identified three critical steps in plasma production and utilized the Heliotron J device to study fusion plasma discharges. They discovered that blasting 2.45-GHz microwaves without alignment of the magnetic field produced a dense plasma, which could potentially simplify fusion research in the future.

Lead author Yurii Victorovich Kovtun, despite being forced to evacuate the Kharkiv Institute of Physics and Technology amid the current Russia-Ukraine war, has continued to work with Kyoto University to create stable plasmas using microwaves.

Getting plasma just right is one of the hurdles to harnessing the massive amounts of energy promised by nuclear fusion.

Plasmas — soups of ions and electrons — must be held at the right density, temperature, and duration for atomic nuclei to fuse together to achieve the desired release of energy.

One recipe involves the use of large, donut-shaped devices with powerful magnets that contain a plasma while carefully aligned microwave generators heat the atomic mixture.

Physics Fusion Energy Waves Concept

Fusion power is a fascinating and promising field of research, which seeks to harness the same process that powers the Sun to produce clean, abundant, and virtually limitless energy.

Now, the Institute of Advanced Energy at Kyoto University, together with the Kharkiv Institute and the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics have collaborated to create plasmas with fusion-suitable densities, using microwave power with low frequency.

The research team has identified three important steps in the plasma production: lightning-like gas breakdown, preliminary plasma production, and steady-state plasma. The study is being conducted using Heliotron J, the latest iteration of experimental fusion plasma devices at the Institute of Advanced Energy, located on KyotoU’s Uji campus in south Kyoto.

“Initially, we did not expect these phenomena in Heliotron J but were surprised to find that plasmas were forming without cyclotron resonance,” group leader Kazunobu Nagasaki explains.

Building on decades of experience, Nagasaki’s team is exploring the fusion plasma discharges in Heliotron J.

The team injected intense bursts of 2.45-GHz microwave power into a feed gas. Microwave ovens in the home operate at this same frequency but Heliotron J is around 10 times more powerful and concentrated over a few gas atoms.

“Unexpectedly, we found that blasting the microwaves without alignment of Heliotron J’s magnetic field created a discharge that ripped electrons from their atoms and produced an especially dense plasma,” marvels Nagasaki.

“We are extremely grateful that our colleague could continue supporting the study, despite the war in Ukraine. Our findings about this method to generate plasmas using microwave discharge may simplify fusion research in the future.”

Interesting Facts  About Fusion Power

  1. Fusion vs. Fission: Fusion power is based on the process of nuclear fusion, where atomic nuclei combine to form a heavier nucleus, releasing energy in the process. This is different from nuclear fission, currently used in nuclear power plants, where heavy atomic nuclei are split into lighter nuclei, also releasing energy.
  2. The Sun’s power: Fusion is the process that powers the Sun and other stars, where hydrogen nuclei (protons) combine to form helium, releasing enormous amounts of energy in the form of light and heat.
  3. Fuel abundance: Fusion power primarily uses isotopes of hydrogen, deuterium, and tritium, as fuel. Deuterium can be extracted from seawater, making it an abundant resource, while tritium can be bred from lithium, another relatively abundant element.
  4. No long-lived radioactive waste: One of the major advantages of fusion power is that it produces very little long-lived radioactive waste, unlike fission reactors. The primary waste product is helium, an inert gas with many commercial uses.
  5. High energy density: Fusion reactions have a much higher energy density compared to chemical reactions or nuclear fission, meaning that a small amount of fusion fuel can potentially generate a large amount of energy.
  6. ITER: The International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) is a large-scale scientific project aimed at demonstrating the feasibility of fusion power. It is being built in France, with collaboration from 35 countries, and is expected to achieve first plasma in the late 2020s.
  7. Tokamak reactors: Most fusion research currently focuses on the tokamak design, a doughnut-shaped magnetic confinement device that uses powerful magnetic fields to contain and control the plasma (a hot, ionized gas) in which fusion occurs.
  8. Inertial confinement fusion (ICF): Another approach to achieving fusion power is ICF, which involves using powerful lasers or other means to compress and heat a small fuel pellet, causing it to implode and trigger fusion reactions.
  9. Breakeven point: The breakeven point in fusion research is when the energy generated from fusion reactions equals the energy input required to sustain the reaction. Researchers are working to achieve and surpass this point in order to make fusion power a viable energy source.
  10. Fusion’s potential: If successfully developed and commercialized, fusion power could provide a virtually limitless, clean, and sustainable energy source, with the potential to greatly reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help mitigate climate change.

    I was right when I said porn look like a procreation chamber. Porn is procreation made in hope that some people will have sex and create kid.

    The Vatican’s name is often associated with the Papacy and the Catholic Church, but its origin is linked to an Etruscan goddess, Vatika. This goddess was associated with birth and the earth, and was the guardian of the necropolis and the underworlds.

    According to historians, the name Vatican comes from ” Vatika“, the archaic Etruscan name of the goddess. She is also known as Vaticanus or Vaginatus, which literally means ” vagina“, that is, the female reproductive organ.

    The goddess is often depicted with a torch, key, scroll, or sword, which relates to her role as a guide in the underworld. The torch lights the way for travelers to the afterlife, the key opens the door to this world and the parchment contains the fate of the deceased for his next incarnation.

    I don’t think so, we have fucking up your physical apparences for a while now. Have guy look at your hair in mirror, have you look at the color of your glasses.

    You have been fucking your physical apparences for a while now, you guys now that righg.
