Treating PFAS water contamination with cold plasma
University of Michigan researchers are developing better plasma technology that can destroy PFAS compounds
Twisting magnetic fields for extreme plasma compression
When magnetic walls are closing in, wily plasma slips out between magnetic field lines. A Michigan-led team pioneered a way to keep more plasma contained.
$5.2M for digital twins of nuclear reactors could bring down nuclear energy costs
Virtual copies of nuclear reactors could enable smarter maintenance for current reactors and more automation for advanced reactors.
Catching nuclear smugglers: fast algorithm could enable cost-effective detectors at borders
The algorithm can pick out weak signals from nuclear weapons materials, hidden in ordinary radiation sources like fertilizer.
