NEA issues call to action in report on nuclear cost reductions
A new report from the Paris-based OECD Nuclear Energy Agency declares that nuclear power is needed for countries to meet their Paris Agreement decarbonization and energy security policy goals, but that governmental support for a rapid reduction in the cost of new nuclear capacity through the creation of certain policy frameworks is likely necessary.

This paper presents a brief review of experimental results obtained on the Gas Dynamic Trap (GDT) device during the last few years. Special attention is paid to the problems of longitudinal plasma confinement and suppression of transverse transport caused by magnetohydrodynamic instabilities in mirror traps with an axisymmetric magnetic field configuration. We also consider problems of auxiliary electron cyclotron resonance heating in the GDT plasma. Electromagnetic fluctuations driven by anisotropic high pressure plasma in GDT will be discussed as well as influence of these fluctuations on plasma confinement.
