Navratil Hosts the 24th Workshop on MHD Stability Control


Gerald A. Navratil, the Thomas Alva Edison Professor of Applied Physics, hosted the 24th Workshop on MHD Stability Control at Columbia from October 28-30, 2019.

The workshop theme was “Key MHD Control Issues on the Path Towards a Compact Fusion Pilot Plant.” It embraced the focus of the Community Planning Process, building on the National Academy recommendation that, “the United States should start a national program of accompanying research and technology leading to the construction of a compact pilot plant that produces electricity from fusion at the lowest possible.”
