The TAE Technologies modeling group has won a 2018 US Department of Energy INCITE (Innovative and Novel Computational Impact on Theory and Experiment) award on the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility’s Theta supercomputer. The award is for 31MCH (million core hours), which is equivalent to 100MCH on ALCF’s Blue Gene supercomputer, Mira, and will be used to accelerate our research in creating clean fusion energy.

Achievement of field-reversed configuration plasma sustainment via 10 MW neutral-beam injection on the C-2U device

November 2017 | H. Gota | Nuclear Fusion | Paper

The TAE Technologies experimental program has demonstrated reliable field-reversed configuration (FRC) formation and sustainment, driven by fast ions via high-power neutral-beam (NB) injection.
