Physicists propose new way to stabilize next-generation fusion plasmas

(DOE/Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory) Recent experiments conducted on the DIII-D National Fusion Facility suggest that up to 40 percent of high-energy particles are lost during tokamak fusion reactions because of Alfvén waves.
