About the Center:

The Center for Momentum Transport and Flow Organization in Plasmas and Magnetofluids (CMTFO) is a Plasma Science Center sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Fusion Energy Sciences. The CMTFO brings together astrophysical and magnetic fusion theorists, experimentalists and computationalists from multiple institutions. Working across a range of experiments extending from liquid metal magnetohydrodynamics (MHD) and small laboratory plasmas to large magnetic confinement devices, Center researchers are examining the link between turbulent momentum transport and large scale flow self-organization using newly developed diagnostic and data analysis techniques, and are investigating and testing emerging theoretical and computational models. The computational tools range from nonlinear turbulent MHD codes to collisionless gyrokinetic plasma simulations. Center activities will be focused using a set of cross-cutting scientific themes relevant to systems as diverse as magnetic fusion plasmas, the solar tachocline and ionized accretion disks, and will seek to identify the underlying principles that govern self-organization of plasma and magnetofluid flows.
