At PPPL we develop scientific understanding and key innovations needed to realize fusion as a safe and economic energy source for the world. Plasma physics and fusion research are at the forefront of science and technology in one of the grand challenges of the 21st century. Engineers play a crucial role in the PPPL mission, work in close collaboration with world class physicists and attack difficult scientific and technical problems.

Engineering powers our research.
