Eurofer 97 is the main structural material targeted for the DEMO reactors which will be operated under magnetic fields. It is therefore imperative to understand the effect of magnetic fields on the mechanical properties of the Eurofer 97. Here we preform 30 uniaxial tensile tests with and without a 1.5 T magnetic field at room temperature. The stat…

This paper discusses the possibility that there is an enhancement of volume production due to gettering of atomic hydrogen by the caesium deposited on the walls, which reduces the negative ion destruction by associative and non-associative detachment. Such an enhancement would take place for all plasma grid bias voltages. Furthermore at plasma grid…

There is an increasing need to model plasma inter- action with complex engineered surfaces, notably to verify that power deposition rates are acceptable. The SMARDDA algorithm has been developed to meet this requirement, with particular reference to the neutral beam ducts that feed into the vacuum vessels of tokamaks. Application to limiters and di…

A model of the space charge neutralization of negative ion beams, developed from the model due to Holmes, is applied to the ITER heating and diagnostic beams. The Holmes model assumed that the plasma electron temperature was derived from the stripped electrons. This is shown to be incorrect for the ITER beams and the plasma electron temperature is …

The effect of a rotation of the electrode used to accelerate a positive ion beam is treated analytically for the Joint European Torus (JET) Positive Ion Neutral Injector ~PINI! tetrode accelerator. The rotation is taken to be about an axis in the plane of the electrode and perpendicular to the beam axis, so the effect is that of a tilt in the align…
