Association Euratom-Tekes: Final summary report 2007-2013

    Research output: Book/ReportReport

    Abstract

    This report summarises the fusion research activities of the Finnish and Estonian Research Units of the Association Euratom-Tekes in 2007-2013. The emphasis of the work coordinated by EFDA was in ITER Physics, PPPT and the ITM Task Force. Other EFDA activities were carried out within Goal Oriented Training and EFDA Fellowship. In addition, a significant fraction of Tekes activities was directed to F4E grants and ITER contracts. Fusion physics work was carried out at VTT, Aalto University (AU), University of Helsinki (UH) and University of Tartu (UT). The main activities were plasma experiments in collaboration with tokamak laboratories, modelling and code development, and diagnostics related to the main European fusion facilities JET and AUG. In particular, Association Euratom-Tekes focused on (i) Heat and particle transport and fast particle studies, (ii) Plasma-wall interactions and material transport in the scrape-off layer, and (iii) Development of simulation codes and their integration into the ITM environment. The Association participated in the EFDA JET Workprogrammes, including experiments with the carbon wall and the ITER-like wall, edge and core modelling, diagnostics development and code integration. The Association participated also in the experimental programmes of ASDEX Upgrade at IPP and the analysis of DIII-D and C-Mod data. Technology work was carried out at VTT, AU and Tampere University of Technology (TUT) in close collaboration with Finnish industry. Industrial participation was coordinated by Tekes. The technology research and development includes the DTP2 facility at VTT in Tampere, materials and joining techniques, vessel/in-vessel components, magnetic diagnostics for ITER by micromechanical magnetometers, upgrading of the JET NPA diagnostics, Power Plant Physics and Technology (PPPT) activities, plasma facing materials issues, erosion/re-deposition and material transport studies and development of coating techniques. Association Euratom-Tekes was involved in Goal-Oriented Training in Remote Handling project, coordinated by Tampere University of Technology.
