Publication laboratory for plasma physics, most read paper in "Physics of Plasmas"

In recent months, the LPP-ERM/KMS team, in collaboration with scientists from more than twenty laboratories around the world, has summarized the experimental progress and various applications of the three-ion ICRH scenarios in a review paper for the American scientific journal "Physics of Plasmas". Because of the very positive judgments during the review process, the Editors of the journal choose to promote the paper as a "Featured Paper". Moreover, only two weeks after its official publication, the paper received more than 1000 views and it is currently one of the most read papers of this prestigious journal.

New computing power against COVID-19

On Wednesday 11 March, just before the COVID-19 lockdown in Belgium, the nVidia DGX Station for the SSAVE project arrived at the Royal Military Academy. In the meantime, the COVID-19 crisis struck hard, and the Folding@Home project announced that it is launching computations in support of the search for drug binding sites on the new virus. We decided to immediately deploy the DGX station to donate spare computing cycles to this project.
