Ash

Ash

(Science: radiobiology) fusion reaction products trapped in a plasma. Ash is bad because (a) it generally radiates more strongly than the fuel ions, and thus reduces energy confinement, and (b) it creates additional plasma pressure and/or reduces pressure available for fuel ions.

Controlling ash is a major area of fusion research. Ideally one would be able to extract the ash ions after diverting an appropriate fraction of their energy to heating the fuel ions, and then convert the remaining ash energy to electricity.

current research involves using rf waves to transfer energy from ash ions to fuel ions, and to push the ash into the scrape-off layer, where it can be collected via divertors.

Agriculture and Microbiology come together (Research Prjct)

... In the near future I will be starting a compost container with Earthworms, then I will eventually get rabbits, collect their droppings (mixed with ash and banana peels) and start a fungi, bacteria, nematode compost bin. I will start a 2 part composting cycle at that point. Before I ever make my ...

Re: Identify the plant

... is free on Flickr. Flickr has a lot of Asian members and they would probably recognize your plant quickly. The reason it is probably on the fly ash is that there is no Nitrogen in the ash and the only plants that can grow on the Nitrogen free environment are nitrogen fixers like legumes. Since ...
