Larry Grisham, a physicist at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory , has received the Kaul Foundation Prize for Excellence in Plasma Physics and Technology Development.
The award recognizes Grisham "for his distinguished contributions to the understanding and improvement of the first generation of high-power negative-ion-based neutral beams for fusion applications." In experimental fusion devices, a beam of neutral atoms is fired into hot, ionized fuel called plasma to increase the temperature for the production of fusion power. The University awards the Kaul Prize to recognize a recent outstanding technical achievement in plasma physics or technology development by a full-time, regular employee of the PPPL.
