Delivering HPC results to EUROfusion

On 12th April 2018, our Fusion group member Xavier Sáez visited the Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik, Garching, Germany, to participate in the meeting of the EUROfusion High Level Support Team.

Xavier presented the completed work performed to improve the performance of FELTOR (Full-F ELectromagnetic code in TORoidal geometry), which is both a numerical library and a scientific software package built on top of it.

Our PhD student Allah Rakha presented his current work titled “Modelling of Energetic Particle-Driven Alfvénic instabilities in TJ-II plasmas” at Fast Ions Physics workshop (January 22-23, 2018), held at Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik Teilinstitut Greifswald, Germany.

The fast ion physics workshop was designed for the stellarator fusion community to envisage the studies of energetic particles for up-coming experimental campaign in July 218 at W7X stellarator.
