24th International Conference on Plasma Surface Interactions in Controlled Fusion Devices (PSI), South Korea, 24 - 29 January 2021

One of the issues faced by future fusion devices will be high target heat loads. Alternative divertors are a potential solution to the heat loads. They have been investigated in TCV and DIII-D, and will be investigated on MAST-U. To evaluate their effectiveness, accurate target heat flux and power balance measurements are required in these machines…

46th European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics (EPS), Milan, 8-12 July 2019

Disruption prediction and avoidance is critical in ITER and reactor-scale tokamaks to maintain steady plasma operation and to avoid damage to device components. The present status and results from the physics-based disruption event characterization and forecasting (DECAF) research effort are shown for multiple tokam…

46th European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics (EPS), Milan, 8-12 July 2019

During edge localised modes (ELMs) high heat fluxes are incident on divertor targets, which future fusion devices will not withstand [1]. A solution to reduce the heat fluxes could be the new Super-X divertor, which will be tested on the MAST-U tokamak. The divertor has an increased connection length, magnetic flux expansion and is designed to r…

46th European Physical Society Conference on Plasma Physics (EPS), Milan, 8-12 July 2019

Plasma detachment needs to be achieved in ITER [1] and future devices such as DEMO to dissipate most of the power in the Scrape-Off-Layer (SOL) and reduce the particle flux reaching the divertor targets. In order to enhance our capability to improve current, and design future tokamaks, we must improve our understanding of the relative effect on det…
