The first ITER tungsten (W) divertor is the largest and most complex of its kind ever to be constructed. It must survive an expected ~2000 hours of plasma exposure through the non-active to the first DT campaigns. A key parameter determining the operational range for stationary loading is the peak target power flux density, qpk, ... Read more about "Physics basis for the ITER tungsten divertor"

High energy long life rechargeable battery is considered as key enabling technology for deep de-carbonization. Energy storage in the electrochemical form is attractive because of its high efficiency and fast response time. Besides the technological importance, electrochemical devices also provide a unique platform for fundamental and applied materials research since ion movement is often accompanied ...

Assessing the habitability of Mars has been an objective of the scientific community for a long time, but it has recently become a sustained focus in light of data being returned from the planet and growing knowledge about life in extreme environments. The Curiosity rover on the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL), one of NASAs flagship ... Read more about "Is Mars Habitable ?"
