Bob Wilcox

Position title: PhD Alumni


Bob studied the interaction of turbulence and flows in HSX and the effects of quasi-symmetry on the determination of the radial electric field in a stellarator. This was mainly done by using multi-tipped Langmuir probes to measure the radial electric field, density and potential fluctuations in the plasma edge, and then comparing these measurements with neoclassical calculations.

Bob received his PhD in 2014. Visit this link for his full dissertation, and visit this link for his article.

Bob is began work at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory Fusion Energy group and then joined the General Atomics Fusion Group/DIII-D Laboratory in San Diego, CA.
