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
Abstract:
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
Abstract:
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.

19th International Conference on Plasma-Facing Materials and Components for Fusion Applications
22 May 2023 - 26 May 2023 • Bonn, Germany
Abstract:
The performance of fusion devices and of future fusion power plants strongly depends on the capability and durability of plasma-facing materials and components under the expected operational conditions. This comprises the resistance to heat and particle loads, material and in particular thermo-mechanical properties, as well as the variation of those as a result of fusion neutron irradiation. These are all critical parameters, which need to be understood and tailored from atomistic to component levels. The 19th International Conference on Plasma-Facing Materials and Components for Fusion Applications addresses these issues.

11th ITER International School — The Impact and Consequences of Energetic Particles in Fusion Plasmas
17 Jul 2023 - 21 Jul 2023 • Aix-en-Provence, France
Abstract:
The 12th ITER International School will be hosted by Aix-Marseille University in Marseille. The subject of this year’s school is “The Impact and Consequences of Energetic Particles on Fusion Plasmas”. As the start of ITER operations approaches, it is timely to address this multidisciplinary topic that includes plasma self-heating by fusion-born alpha-particles, the influence of energetic particles on stability, diagnosing energetic particle transport and loss, and understanding runaway electrons. The ITER International School aims to prepare young scientists and engineers for working in the field of nuclear fusion and in research applications associated with the ITER Project. The adoption of a “school format” was a consequence of the need to prepare future scientists and engineers on a range of different subjects and to provide them with a wide overview of the interdisciplinary skills required by the ITER project.
