Physics & Astronomy Colloquium - Fulvio Zonca, ENEA

Title: "Alfvénic fluctuations and alpha particle transport in burning plasmas"

Thursday, April 21, 2022
3:15pm – 4:15pm
Wilder 104 & Via Zoom (below)
Intended Audience(s): Public
Categories: Lectures & Seminars
After a brief introduction, addressing controlled thermonuclear fusion in magnetized plasmas and
recent experimental results in the Joint European Torus, the physics issues of reactor relevant
burning plasmas are put in the perspective of the International Tokamak Experimental Reactor
and the DEMOnstration power plant. Emphasis is given to the need of developing a reliable
predictive capability of nonlinear behaviors of burning plasmas, that is transport processes
and self-organization. State of the art general approaches are described, and
Alfvénic fluctuations and fusion alpha particle transport are taken as paradigmatic cases
to illustrate the current understanding of these physics issues and open problems.
