Indiana Senate bill will have state consider SMRs
A new bill in the Indiana state Senate creates guidelines for state regulators to consider small modular reactors should utilities want to build them. Senate Bill 271 was sponsored by Sen. Eric Koch (R., Bedford), chair of the Senate Utilities Committee, and Sen. Blake Doriot (R., Goshen). Supporters of the bill said that SMRs could replace retiring coal plants and would supplement renewables.
The Indy Star reported on January 24 that the utilities committee passed the bill by a vote of eight to two and that it now heads to the full Senate.

To measure the behavior of high energy ions, a semiconductor detector (named: ccHED) is installed at the central cell mid-plane of GAMMA 10. When ccHED is located at the radius of R=25cm from the center of plasma, the burst like signal is observed. To investigate this burst like signal, FFT method is applied to the signal of ccHED and signal of electrostatic probes (ESPs) which is used to measure fluctuations. As a result, it is clearly observed that the frequency component of the burst like signal has the same peak as one of the frequency components of the fluctuations. The amplitude of the signal has the pitch angle dependence. These observations suggest the existence of the radial transport of high energy ions due to the drift-type fluctuations.
