Decennial IAEA Technical Meeting on Atomic, Molecular and Plasma-Interaction Data for Fusion Science and Technology

Meeting Report

On several occasions over the last 50 years the IAEA has organized meetings to review the status of atomic, molecular and plasma-material research for fusion:

  • 1976, Culham Laboratory, UK: formulated, for the first time, a comprehensive scope for atomic and molecular data needs for fusion.
  • 1980, Fontenay-aux-Roses, France: reviewed the status of data needs in relation to experimental programmes of large tokamaks.
  • 1992, Cadarache, France: reviewed and identified new data needs in for large operating fusion machines.
  • 2002, Jülich Research Centre, Germany: reconsidered data needs in the light of further increases in the size and power of experimental fusion devices and the early use of deuterium-tritium fuel. in these machines.

In 2014, a further large meeting was held at the National Fusion Research Institute (NFRI; now the Korea Institute of Fusion Energy, KFE), with the goal of advancing data-oriented research on atomic, molecular and plasma-material processes and properties that are important for fusion. The goal was to promote collaboration among fusion energy researchers and those in the field of the calculation or measurement of relevant fundamental data.
