Every other year, the US or Japan hosts the Compact Toroid (CT) workshop on the alternate side of the Pacific. This is a series that has continued for many years on the subject of compact tori. This year, the US will be hosting the workshop, which will be held in Irvine, California, August 22 – 24, 2016.
The objective of the 2016 workshop is to discuss equilibrium study and applications of CT and other innovative confinement concepts that share basic physics and experimental techniques with CTs. The future of compact tori will also be discussed.
General Fusion Chief Scientist Dr. Michel Laberge will present on plasma compression experiments at General Fusion, while Dr. Stephen Howard will present experimental results from the SPECTOR device at General Fusion.
