Fusion Group presentation at the International Conference on Fusion Reactor Materials (ICFRM-20)

The BSC Fusion Group’s researcher Julio Gutiérrez Moreno will be attending and will present our recent progress on the FusionCAT ab initio materials modelling activities at the next International Conference on Fusion Reactor Materials (ICFRM-20) conference. ICFRM is the premier international conference and the leading platform for materials experts studying, developing and qualifying materials for fusion energy facilities from all over the world. This biannual conference focuses on fusion related structural, functional, plasma facing materials, including also irradiation effects, and materials engineering and technologies.

The BSC Fusion group at the 46th annual meeting of Spanish Nuclear Society

The opening session of the 46th SNE annual meeting

Earlier this month, our BSC fusion group attended for the first time the Annual meeting of the Spanish Nuclear Society (Sociedad Nuclear Española). The 46th edition of this annual event (link to full programme with papers) took place in Granada from 6th to the 8th of October. This congress is a key event for stakeholders from state, industry and research sectors with interest in the Spanish nuclear energy sphere to meet, network and discuss the future of the field. Our group member Pedro Bonilla presented BSC’s multi-physics simulation capabilities as a first step to enhance our collaborations in the field.

The BSC triples its members linked to FusionCAT project to develop cutting-edge tools by combining High-Performance Computing (HPC) with fusion expertise.


The Barcelona Supercomputing Centre -Centro Nacional de Supercomputacion (BSC) coordinates FusionCAT, an initiative that brings together seven Catalan institutions to collaborate in the field of research and development of fusion energy technology. The cutting-edge tools to develop are focused on High-Performance simulations of several coupled physics phenomena that take place in fusion reactors. These go from fuel production to energy harvesting, including plasma and neutron transport and new materials development.

14th Carolus Magnus Summer School

Carolus Magnus Summer School

The 14th Carolus Magnus Summer School on Plasma and Fusion Energy Physics (CMSS) takes place this year between 20 September and 1 October. The event is held online and has attracted 90 participants from around 25 countries.

Attending to CMSS has a long tradition in our group. Our group leader Mervi Mantsinen was one of the participants in the 1st CMSS in Vaals, The Netherlands back in 1993 while our group member Dani Gallart with our ex-group member Allah Rakha participated in its previous 13th edition in Weert, The Netherlands, in 2018. To follow the tradition, our two PhD students, i.e. Tomás Bensadón and Mátyás Aradi, attend the summer school this year.

Master thesis on Experimental Validation of a new HPC Modelling Tool for High Temperature Superconductors

Our Fusion group member, Oriol Fernández has successfully presented his Master thesis in the Master of Modelling for Science and Engineering in Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona entitled Experimental Validation of a new HPC Modelling Tool for High-Temperature Superconductors.

This thesis was based on the work Oriol has been carrying out since last February in our group in close collaboration with ICMAB (Institute of Material Science in Barcelona), under the supervision of José Lorenzo and Mervi Mantsinen. The defense was held virtually due to the Covid19 pandemic on the 8th of September.
