Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory

Princeton Plasma Physical Laboratory (PPPL) is a collaborative national center for plasma and fusion energy sciences. It is the only DOE Laboratory devoted to these areas, and it is the lead U.S. institution investigating the science of magnetic fusion energy. PPPL has two coupled missions: The Laboratory develops the scientific knowledge to realize fusion energy as a clean, safe and abundant energy source for all humankind, leading development of the physics of high-temperature plasmas needed for fusion. Also, PPPL develops the scientific understanding of plasmas from nano- to astrophysical-scale. Modern plasma physics began with the advent of the world fusion program, and continues to lead to new discoveries of this complex state of matter.
