Jason Smoniewski

Jason is studying flows in HSX and the effects of viscosity and symmetry on the determination of the flows and the radial electric field in a stellarator.

Evan Schilling

Fernando Castillo

Fernando is continuing the work into impurity injection into HSX using the YAG laser blow off equipment. Previous stellarator impurity injection experiments in other devices have seen discrepancies in impurity flows and accumulations as predicted by neoclassical models, and seen in other non-stellarator devices.
