A New Accelerator to Study Steps on the Path to Fusion

Berkeley Lab’s NDCX-II, the recently completed second generation Neutralized Drift Compression Experiment, is a compact accelerator whose dense ion beam will be able to deliver a powerful punch for producing warm dense matter – a step on the road to heavy-ion nuclear fusion. Research with NDCX-II will make advances in the acceleration, compression, and focusing of intense ion beams to inform and guide this promising approach to fusion energy power production.
