1 Role of IAEA in the World Fusion Effort
Fusion Power Associates 31st Annual Meeting and Symposium December 1-2, 2010 Capitol Hill Club, 300 First Street, Washington, DC Richard Kamendje Physics Section IAEA

2 Objectives Fusion at IAEA
To strengthen cooperation and increased awareness amongst institutions and researchers of worldwide fusion energy endeavors Sub-Programme 1.4.4: Nuclear Fusion Research (Physics Section) Objective: To strengthen international cooperation and coordinate scientific and technology development activities on fusion among institutions and/or researchers, and enhance developing Member States involvement with leading fusion laboratories/initiatives Project : Atomic and Molecular Data for Fusion Experiments Objective: To increase capabilities of Member States to undertake fusion plasma modelling and quantify plasma-materials interactions through improved atomic and molecular databases Project : Nuclear data for emerging issues and advanced nuclear facilities (Includes a project on the "Fusion-Evaluated Nuclear Data Library version 3 (FENDL-3)")

3 Methods and means of program delivery
Programme is established following advices from the International Fusion Research Council & the International Nuclear Data Council Conferences Technical meetings & symposia Consultancies Coordinated research projects Databases Publications

4 Fusion Energy Conference 2010
Biggest FEC ever with more than 1000 participants, ~600 scientific papers                                                                                                                                                                                     In conjunction with the 23rd IAEA Fusion Energy Conference 9 and 10 October 2010 Daejeon, Republic of Korea Organized by the National Fusion Research Institute In cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency ~ 150 participants

5 Some Technical Meetings to be held in 2010/2011
First ITER-IAEA Technical Meeting on Analysis of ITER Materials and Technologies, 23– 25 November 2010, Principality of Monaco 6th TM on Steady State Operation of Magnetic Fusion Devices, Vienna, Dec. 2010 8th TM on Control, Data Acquisition and Remote Participation for Fusion Research, 20 – 24 June 2011, San Francisco, USA 12th TM on Energetic Particles in Magnetic Confinement Systems, 5 to 7 September 2011, Austin, USA 5th TM on Theory of Plasma Instabilities, 8 to 10 September 2011, Austin, USA 20th IAEA TM on Research Using Small Fusion Devices International Network of Nuclear Reaction Data Centres: May 2011, IAEA Headquarters, Vienna International Network of Atomic and Molecular Data Centres: August 2011 (2 days), IAEA Headquarters, Vienna

6 Consultancies Generally held to prepare new Coordinated Research Projects / Technical Meetings Next example: Consultancy on Role of Research Reactors in Material Research for Nuclear Fusion Technology December 2010, Vienna, Austria

7 Coordinated Research Projects 2010
Integrated Approach to Dense Magnetized Plasma Applications in Nuclear Fusion Technology ( ) Pathway to energy from inertial fusion: an Integrated approach ( ) Activities under preparation: 1st RCM on Utilization of the Network of Small Tokamaks for Investigations of Main Stream Fusion Topics ( , PS) 1st RCM Safety aspects of fusion power plants

8 Development of Databases
Data for Surface Composition Dynamics Relevant to Erosion Processes ( ) Characterization of Size, Composition and Origins of Dust in Fusion Devices ( ) Light Element Atom, Molecule and Radical Behaviour in the Divertor and Edge Plasma Regions ( ) Spectroscopic and Collisional Data for W from 1 eV to 20 keV ( ) Nuclear Data Libraries for Advanced Systems: Fusion Devices (FENDL-3) ( ) Atomic and Molecular Data for State-Resolved Modelling of Hydrogen and Helium and Their Isotopes in Fusion Plasma ( )

9 Nuclear Data Section - Fusion Activities
Maintain the IAEA International Reactor Dosimetry File (to characterize neutron spectrum and flux for IFMIF and other facilities 0-40 MeV) Fusion Evaluated Nuclear Data Library version 3 (FENDL-3). Extends FENDL-2.1 toward higher energies, with inclusion of incident charged particles and covariance data Maintain and develop bibliographical (AMBDAS) and numerical (ALADDIN) databases for atomic and molecular properties NDS - Fusion Activities: Key US Partners: NIST (spectroscopy and nuclear standards), Oak Ridge CFADC (Controlled Fusion Atomic Data Center), Brookhaven (Nuclear Data Center)

10 Nuclear Fusion Journal
IAEA provides the forum, it owns and runs the journal. Gives assurance of impartiality and excellence of peer review Reports on status to IFRC Editorial Board drive direction. Separate from the IAEA Content from contributors worldwide No IAEA budget allocated Revenues from subscriptions and page charges cover costs Contact: S. Le Masurier

11 Fusion Activities in cooperation with other groups within the IAEA
Materials research in Physics Section: Fusion expert + 2 Material experts (R. Kamendje, A. Zeman, D. Ridikas) Physics Section and Nuclear Spectrometry and Applications Laboratory: Common course on Plasma Physics and Spectrometry Use of reactor knowledge in IAEA: Cooperation with nuclear fuel cycle and materials technologies (NEFW, V. Inozemtsev) and reactor development (INPRO, NENP) Use of safety knowledge in IAEA: Cooperation with Nuclear Safety group (NSNI)

12 Cooperation with ITER ITER-IAEA Technical Meeting on Analysis of ITER Materials and Technologies, 23– 25 November 2010, Principality of Monaco Joint ITER-IAEA-ICTP Advanced Workshop on Fusion and Plasma Physics, 3 14 October 2011, ICTP, Trieste, Italy

13 Short to medium term goal
Strong emphasis on substantive achievements and practical applications of plasma physics and fusion with the goal to support the next steps in fusion research in developed and developing countries. Magnetic Fusion (networks, applications, training, materials development, safety and security) Inertial Fusion (basic support, coordinated research projects) Plasma Physics (schools, coordinated research projects)

14 Contact partners in IAEA
