What do nuclear engineering grad students do during their spring break? They jump in a UTK van and road trip to New Jersey to see one of country’s biggest fusion experiments!

Five grad students (Anurag Maan, Jonah Duran, Seung-Sup Lee, Joe Kelsey, Shawn Zamperini) went with Dr. Donovan to Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory last week and toured the NSTX-U fusion experiment (currently down for maintenance) and LTX-Beta as well as the new Andlinger Center material characterization laboratories at Princeton University.

“We had a great experience and surprisingly little traffic on the 11 hour drive” – Dr. Donovan
