1 ITPA-10, April 12, Moscow, Russia. A. Litnovsky et al. Discussion on first mirrors. Discussion on first mirrors 1 Although a sound progress has been achieved in the field of first mirror investigation, there is a number of open questions. These questions need to be addressed urgently. ► Materials, locations and shapes of mirrors are yet to be determined; ► Mirror research is presently still in the frames of fundamental investigations and is relatively weakly related to the ITER-specific diagnostics; ► Dedicated modeling of existing experiments is lacking. Predictive modeling is missing. ► Uncertainties related with ITER design and performance. (e.g. limiter phase of ITER operation, diagnostics issues: distance to the plasma is defined voluntarily for various diagnostics). The R&D decisions have to be made soon. Background

2 ITPA-10, April 12, Moscow, Russia. A. Litnovsky et al. Discussion on first mirrors. Discussion on first mirrors 2 General strategy: Clearly define the issues influencing the mirror performance and concentrate the main efforts on resolving them. Current research: modeling and experiments: ► Problems and tasks for modeling should be identified and supplied to the modeling community. Proposal: impurity transport in/towards the diagnostic systems, erosion and deposition patterns on the mirrors and impact on their performance; ► More diagnostic-related mirror research: experiments with prototypes and mock-ups of ITER diagnostic systems should have the highest priority; ► Specific requirements for the mirrors of the respective diagnostics: reflectivity, planarity, polarization requirements should be taken into account. ► Closer collaboration with diagnostic people; ► Intensify the collaboration with PWI community. Proposed agenda

3 ITPA-10, April 12, Moscow, Russia. A. Litnovsky et al. Discussion on first mirrors. Discussion on first mirrors 3 General issues: Neutron effects We need a database of the neutron effects (transmutation) on the mirror (and wall) materials. ► Action: coordinated work with Radiation effects SWG (define a person); ► Possible action: storage of the publications on the SWG website. ► Ph. D. in IPP FZ Jülich Improved information exchange Re – structure the website: ► Introduce “Current Issues” section with sub-sections i.e. “Choice of mirror materials”, “Neutron effects”, “Impact of erosion and deposition on mirror performance”, “Deposition mitigation and mirror cleaning”, “R&D issues of the first mirrors” (with current work on mirror design, holders etc.)”, and post the selected publications, presentations, links and slides into it.

4 ITPA-10, April 12, Moscow, Russia. A. Litnovsky et al. Discussion on first mirrors. Discussion on first mirrors 4 General issues Improved information exchange (continued): ► Introduce “Modeling of mirror performance” section (with the information or links, related to the first mirror modeling. ► Introduce “Future plans” section, so that Parties have an opportunity to share their ideas voluntarily and provide an aid in experimental planning. ► Diagnostic people: please update the table with mirror requirements for ITER. The table is available on the website at: https://tec.ipp.kfa-juelich.de/mirrorswg/https://tec.ipp.kfa-juelich.de/mirrorswg/ Username (case sensitive): ItpaUser; Password: IterMirror. Then ->”Diagnostic mirrors in ITER”->download the Word version of table and edit it. ► Forum(?).
