The Diagnostics and Control Group, part of the Burning Plasma Foundations Section, develops and validates innovative measurement and control capabilities needed to understand and control important physics phenomena in present devices, and maintain robust control in the fusion nuclear environment of future fusion devices.
Vision: Measurements that illuminate and steer the physics of burning plasmas.
Mission: Pursue innovations in diagnostic development that advance our understanding of fusion plasma science, improve our ability to influence burning plasmas, and enhance survivability in fusion nuclear environments.
The group currently collaborates with several different projects. These include:
