Professor Emeritus of Nuclear Engineering
Department of Nuclear Engineering
(510) 642-7071

Research Expertise and Interest

plasma physics, nuclear engineering, magnetic fusion, confinement and stability of plasmas for thermonuclear fusion, fusion reactor design, spehromak compact toroid plasma confinement configuration


Professor Fowler specializes in plasma physics and magnetic fusion energy. His current research interest is theoretical aspects of the spheromak compact toroid plasma confinement configuration that is being studied experimentally at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. On-going projects include the development of computer models of heat transport and gun injection in spheromaks.
