Between September 16th and October 11th, our group member Ignacio López de Arbina worked at the ITER Organization headquarters under the Severo Ochoa Mobility Program of Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC).
Ignacio works to integrate the PION code in the IMAS infrastructure within the Work Package Code Development (WPCD) of the EUROfusion Consortium. PION is an Ion Cyclotron Range of Frequencies (ICRF) heating code which is widely used in our group and the European fusion community to model the power deposition of the launched electromagnetic waves in the plasma. IMAS stands for the ITER Integrated Modeling & Analysis Suit. This is a software infrastructure that the fusion community is developing at ITER to allow and ease the integrated modelling, that is the simultaneous and self-consistent calculations between the different codes that model a fusion experiment.
