The Plasma Science and Innovation Center's primary objective is to develop predictive capability for "EC-level" experiments, so that one can design and model new experiments in fusion science and in other areas of plasma science, but without actual construction.
Five key physics issues have been identified for developing unified and comprehensive modeling capabilities for EC experiments. They are:
1. Two fluid / Hall physics.
2. Kinetic and FLR effects.
3. Reconnection, relaxation physics.
4. Transport, atomic physics, and radiation.
5. Boundary conditions and geometry.
