2014 Advanced Research Finalist
Using CompactRIO and LabVIEW to Monitor and Control a Compact Spherical Tokamak for Plasma Research
Author: Paul Apte, Tokamak Solutions
Challenge: Creating a small, cost-effective tokamak for the approximately 300 plasma research centers in the world to use for exploring magnetic confinement fusion.
Solution: Using NI CompactRIO hardware and NI LabVIEW software to develop a powerful DAQ and control system for a small tokamak, providing plasma physics research centers easier access to the technology they need to accelerate their research, with less expense.
