Navratil Hosts 1997 MHD Workshop
Prof. Gerald Navratil hosted the "Workshop on Control of MHD Modes with Non-Axisymmetric Coils", from Sunday, Nov. 23, – Tuesday, Nov. 25, at Columbia University.
The workshop, jointly sponsored by Columbia University, General Atomics, and the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, discussed work related to the control of MHD modes with non-axistmmetric coils and plans for MHD mode control experiments on DIII-D.
The workshop included invited and contributed papers. Topical areas emphasized at this workshop included both physics and design issues related with the control of resistive wall modes and tearing modes using non-asixymmetric coils external to the plasma.
