BSC Turbulence Research features in EUROfusion Newsletter

This month’s edition of the EUROfusion‘s Newsletter reported on the research done by the fusion community on Plasma Turbulence using as an example the last Transport Task Force Meeting, which counted with the presence of our Fusion group member Felipe Nathan de Oliveira.

The meeting, held at Leysin, in Switzerland,  was attended by various scientists from around the globe and was an important step in the efforts of a global community in reaching the same goal, a clean and limitless energy source.

Shutdown time for JET, lots of work for the fusion community!

The Joint European Torus (JET) is going to take a well-earned shutdown after the 2015-16 experimental campaign which is believed to be one of the most successful campaigns of JET history.

According to the Head of the JET Exploitation Unit, Lorne Horton, “the campaign had three highlights: rehearsal of the procedures for future tritium-tritium and deuterium-tritium experiments, the hydrogen campaign during which physicists learned about the dependence of plasma parameters on the mass of the hydrogen fuel used, and the high-power deuterium campaign. And all these experiments achieved expected results.”

Join us! We are looking for a student for internship in fusion modelling

BSC team.

Our fusion group has recently expanded its research activities to the simulation of  fusion reactor materials, in particular investigating the formation and evolution of radiation generated defects in metal alloys.

Due to the complex character of these alloys, an accurate treatment is often only posible up to some hundred atoms. The BigDFT code, co-developed by BSC, has potential to go beyond this limitation and treat systems which have not been accessible so far.

BSC fusion results at the ITPA meeting in Naka, Japan

Last week, 24-26 October 2016, our fusion group member Shimpei Futatani attended the ITPA Meeting in Naka, which provides a framework for internationally coordinated fusion research activities.

Shimpei gave an oral presentation on his work Non-linear MHD modelling of pellet triggered ELMs at the meeting. The work contributes to the physics understanding of pellet triggered ELM in JET and ASDEX Upgrade tokamaks and has been carried out within EUROfusion, the European Consortium for the Development of Fusion Energy.
