NSO/FIRE Physics Validation Review(PVR)

Updated April 5, 2004

The purpose of the Next Step Options (NSO) activity is to investigate and assess various opportunities for advancing the scientific understanding of fusion energy, with emphasis on plasma behavior at high energy gain and for long duration. The Next Step Options (NSO) study has been organized as a national integrated physics/engineering design activity within the Virtual Laboratory for Technology (VLT).

FIRE PVR Meeting

The FIRE PVR will be held March 30-31, 2004 at the Hampton Inn, Germantown, MD. This web page will be evolving, I will highlight changes as they are made. If you have questions, please email me. DMM
