IAEA Technical Meeting on Plasma Physics and Technology Aspects of the Tritium Fuel Cycle for Fusion Energy
10 Oct 2022 - 13 Oct 2022 • Vienna, Austria
It is expected that first generation fusion power plants will use a mixture of two heavy isotopes of hydrogen — deuterium and tritium (DT) — as fuel, which then fuse to produce helium and neutrons. Inside the reactor, additional tritium will be ‘bred’ or created from the reaction of the neutrons with a lithium blanket covering the inner side of the reactor vessel. However, several uncertainties remain regarding the physics and technology of the DT fuel cycle in ITER and demonstration fusion power plants. The event aims to review and discuss – in an integrated manner – plasma physics and technology aspects of the tritium fuel cycle in magnetic fusion reactors, from ITER to demonstration fusion power plants.

IAEA Technical Meeting on Long-Pulse Operation of Fusion Devices
14 Nov 2022 - 16 Nov 2022 • Vienna, Austria
Controlling fusion plasma for long periods, while gaining experience in steady-state and/or long-pulse operation with active cooling systems that can maintain the plasma facing components at a stable temperature, is essential for the success of ITER and fusion demonstration power plants. To facilitate the coordination on these challenges, the IAEA and the International Energy Agency (IEA) have established – in 2020 – a network for Coordination on International Challenges on Long duration OPeration (CICLOP). The objectives of the CICLOP group are to promote activities, collect and disseminate information on the physics and engineering issues of long-pulse operation for tokamak and stellarator facilities, by sharing best practice, operational procedures, experimental data, simulation programme and coordinating experiments between the fusion-related IEA Technology Collaboration Programmes in close cooperation with the IAEA activities in the same field, through a series of Technical Meetings on Long-Pulse Operation of Fusion Devices.

The event aims to review, discuss and address scientific and engineering issues related to steady-state and long-pulse operation of fusion devices, which are essential for ITER and future fusion reactors.
