Workshop on Radiation Damage in Nuclear Systems

From May 11th to May 22nd, in Trieste, Italy, a Workshop on Radiation Damage in Nuclear Systems: From Bohr To Young is jointly organised by the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). It assists Ph.D. students and early-career researchers in developing a quantitative understanding of the impact of radiation damage on materials, both for existing fission and proposed fusion reactors. There is an emphasis on the conceptual progression of theoretical and experimental techniques across spatial scales from atomistic descriptions to the macroscopic behaviour of bulk material.

Andreas Smolders - internship at SPC

Supported by FuseNet, Andreas Smolders went to the Swiss Plasma Center in Lausanne. He worked on plasma detachment control of the TCV tokamak. He studied the possible actuators and sensors that could be useful for the TCV control system.

Alexis Devitre - MSc thesis at CIEMAT

Supported by FuseNet, Alexis Devitre went to CIEMAT in Madrid for his Master's thesis. He worked with getter-films: thin atomic depositions used across industries to complete and maintain vacuum. Particularly, he was interested in how the boron coating, used in TJ-II to protect this lithium getter-film, affected its functioning.

The National Institute for Nuclear Science and Technology (INSTN) will organise the 2020 edition of the International School in Nuclear Engineering between January 14th and February 7th of 2020. The school aims at promoting knowledge in nuclear engineering (nuclear reactosr and fuele cycle) at a high educational level.

José-Manual Trueba-Cutillas - internship at KIT

Supported by FuseNet, José went to the Karlsruhe Institut für Technologie to work on pellet injection. The case that he worked on was a design of a pellet injector for DEMO. He put a lot of effort into analysing what the best type of extruder would be.

EPS 2019

Supported by FuseNet, Francesca Cella and Yuliia Volkova went to the EPS Plasma Physics conference in Milan from 8 to 12 July. The European Physical Society Plasma Physics Division organizes this conference every year. Both Francesca and Yuliia presented posters of their research at EPS.

Luca Cristale - internship at IST Lisbon

Supported by FuseNet, Luca Cristale went to the Instituto Superior Tècnico in Lisbon to work on fusion diagnostics. In five months' time he got to improve his knowledge of fusion technology, converse with in-the-field researchers and enjoy both culture and sports in the beautiful city of Lisbon.

Neil Lamas - MSc thesis at CIEMAT

Supported by FuseNet, Neil Lamas went to CIEMAT in Madrid, home to the TJ-II stellarator. For his Master's thesis, he worked on optimising stellarators with regard to neoclassical transport for a full four months. Not only did he learn a lot about fusion theory, he also discovered the 24/7, vibrant and cosmopolitan streets of Madrid.

Plasmasurf 2019 (2/2)

Supported by FuseNet, Manuel Agredano Torres, Jakub Caloud and Yacopo Damizia also went to Lisbon's Instituto de Plasmas e Fusao Nuclear to attend PlasmaSurf 2019. It covers the basics of plasma science, intense laser-plasma interaction and fusion technology. To boot, it involves a lot of surfing and rock climbing!

15th Kudowa Summer School

The institute of Plasma Physics and Laser Microfusion (IPPLM, Poland) is organizing the 15th Kudowa Summer School, titled 'Towards fusion energy', which will be held in Kudowa-Zdrój, Poland, from the 29th of June until the 3rd of July 2020.
