Edge localised modes (ELMs) are magneto-hydrodynamic (MHD) instabilities that drive filamentary plasma eruptions in high confinement tokamak discharges [1]. Gaining an improved understanding of ELMs is important [2]; in future fusion reactors such as ITER, ELM heat fluxes will need to be limited to ensure durability of divertor materials [3]. A …

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…

2nd International Conference on Nuclear Power Plants: Structures, Risk and Decommissioning (NUPP), Croydon, UK, 11-12 June 2018

There is currently a European collaboration that is working towards developing a Demonstration Fusion Reactor (European DEMO). This project is currently defining the high level plant architecture of a DEMO reactor, whilst developing conceptual design solutions for technically challenging systems. One such area of development is the design of Pla…
