Spectrum unfolding is a key tool used together with diagnostics in the determination of nuclear fields that are associated with a range of nuclear technologies spanning fusion, fission, nuclear medicine and accelerator domains. The underlying process requires a mathematical method for solving the Fredholm integral equation of the first kind. This p…

A linear perturbation theory is used to model the MHD stability of tokamak equilibria under the application of external 3D magnetic perturbations [C.C. Hegna, Physics of Plasmas 21 :072502, 2014]. The symmetry breaking produces the coupling of toroidal n modes. We use ELITE [H.R. Wilson et al., Physics of Plasmas 9 :1277, 2002] to produce …

We discuss the development, testing and comparison of a combined framework of methods for per-forming neutron spectrum unfolding, which includes the UF_G and UF_M codes, based on the un-derlying mathematics of the GRAVEL and MAXED methods respectively, along with a custom pa-rameterised code, UF_P. We compared the behaviour of each method using a s…

ELM simulations for the MAST-U Super-X tokamak have been obtained, using the JOREK code. The JOREK visco-resistive MHD model has been used to obtain comparisons of divertor configurations. The simulations show a factor 10 decrease in the peak heat flux to the outer target of the Super-X in comparison to a conventional divertor configuration. A ro…

Fusion is one of very few options for sustainable, baseload power to the grid that is necessary to meet the energy needs of future generations. The tokamak is the most advanced approach to fusion and, with the construction of ITER, we are approaching power plant conditions. While commercialisation of this key technology is a main driver for tokamak…
