BSC Fusion Group at the IAEA Fusion Energy Conference in Kyoto, Japan

Kyoto International Conference Center.

This week, 17-22 October 2016, our Fusion Group member Shimpei Futatani has attended the 26th IAEA Fusion Energy Conference in Kyoto, which is one of the important international conferences in the field of fusion energy research. It provides a forum for the discussion of key physics and technology issues as well as innovative concepts of direct relevance to the use of nuclear fusion as a source of energy.


Shimpei has presented 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.
