Abstract

This Annual Report summarises the fusion research activities of the Finnish and Estonian Research Units of the Association Euratom-Tekes in 2011. The emphasis of EFDA is in exploiting JET and co-ordinating physics research in the Associations. In addition, emerging technology and goal oriented training (GOT) activities are under EFDA. R&D Grants for the Joint Undertaking "Fusion for Energy" on remote handling for ITER divertor maintenance and MEMS magnetometer development constituted a significant fraction of the total research volume. The activities of the Research Unit are divided in the fusion physics under the Contract of Association and EFDA. The physics work is carried out at VTT, Aalto University (AU), University of Helsinki and University of Tartu. The research areas of the EFDA Workprogramme within Association Euratom-Tekes are: * Heat and particle transport and fast particle studies * Plasma-wall interactions and material transport in SOL region * Code development and diagnostics. Association Euratom-Tekes participated in the EFDA JET Workprogramme 2011, including C28 experiments with the ITER-like wall, diagnostics development and code integration. Two persons were seconded to the JET operating team, one physicist (codes & modelling) and one engineer (remote handling) in preparation of the ITER-like wall. The Association participated also in the 2011 experimental programmes of ASDEX Upgrade at IPP, DIII-D at GA and C-Mod at MIT. The technology work is carried out at VTT, AU, Tampere University of Technology (TUT) and Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) in close collaboration with Finnish industry. Industrial participation is co-ordinated by Tekes. The technology research and development is focused on * Divertor Test Platform (DTP2) at VTT in Tampere for remote handling of divertor maintenance and development of water hydraulic tools and manipulators * Materials and joining techniques * Vessel/in-vessel components * Magnetic diagnostics by micromechanical magnetometers for ITER * 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 developing coating techniques * In-reactor mechanical testing and characterisation of materials under neutron irradiation. Association Euratom-Tekes is involved in two GOT projects: GOTiT for theory and modelling and GOTRH for remote handling. GOTRH is coordinated by TUT. In July 2013 AU will organize the EPS Plasma Physics Conference in Dipoli, Espoo.
