written by the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory
IPPEX (Internet Plasma Physics Education Experience) is a project developed to allow students and teachers to participate remotely in scientific research at the nation's largest fusion energy laboratory. It offers an introduction to the study of controlled fusion using the tokamak reactor, a fusion confinement device located at Princeton University. The web site includes simulations of plasma reactions and an interactive tutorial on the process of fusion, its potential as a sustainable energy source, and the challenges of harnessing its power. The data analysis exercises are appropriate for introductory physics learners.
