is a consulting group comprised of a project director and several
physicists who focus on computational modeling of the
auxiliary heating of magnetic confinement, fusion energy and
We are engaged in long term
development and upgrading of computer modeling codes which
give phase-space distributions of electrons
and ions resulting from rf wave and plasma sources in toroidal
magnetic confinement devices.
These comprehensive physics-based models have proven useful
for interpretation and
projection of plasma heating, current drive, and particle source
experiments in tokamak,
spherical tokamak and reverse
field pinch plasmas.
- Our goal is to contribute to harnessing fusion energy, the
energy driving the sun, as an economically viable power source for
- The codes are open source. We provide support for their use, under contracts from the USDOE Fusion Energy Science Program, universities and industry.
