  • Illinois receives plasma/fusion facility from German institute

    Some assembly required Daniel Andruczyk, a research professor of nuclear, plasma and radiological engineering, oversees the unloading of one of several pieces of the new Hybrid Illinois Device for Research and Applications. The device, a gift from the Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics in Germany, arrived on several flatbed trailers last week after a long trans-Atlantic ride on a ship. Once it is reassembled, Illinois will join a short list of universities worldwide that have an operating fusion device on its campus.  Click photo to enlarge
