FISPACT-II is an advanced activation/transmutation and inventory code that employs the most up-to-date and sophisticated nuclear data forms, including the full TENDL-2017 library. TENDL includes residual nuclide production for incident particle energies up to 200 MeV. To address the needs of activation-transmutation simulation in incident-particle …

We present a new analysis of nanoscale lattice defects observed after low-dose in situ self-ion irradiation of tungsten foils at cryogenic temperature. For decades, defect counts and size-frequency histograms have been the standard form of presenting a quantitative analysis of the nanoscale “black-dot” damage typical of such irradiations. Here …

The development of improved designs for components which will be subject to high heat fluxes has been identified as a critical challenge for the realisation of commercial fusion power. This paper presents details of a facility which allows early verification of thermofluid and thermomechananical performance of prototype components and enables compa…

Tangentially viewing fast camera footage of the low-field side snowflake minus divertor in TCV is analysed across a four point scan in which the proximity of the two X-points is varied systematically. The apparent flow observed in the post-processed movie shows two distinct regions of the camera frame exhibiting differing flow patterns. One flow in…

Nuclear analysis supporting the design and licensing of ITER is traditionally performed using MCNP and the reference model ‘C-Model’, however the complexity of C-Model has resulted in the geometry creation and integration process becoming increasingly time-consuming. Serpent 2 is still a beta code, however recent enhancements mean that it could…

This paper presents the effect of self-consistent plasma backgrounds including plasma-neutral interactions, on the dynamics of filament propagation. The principle focus is on the influence of the neutrals on the filament through both direct interactions and through their influence on the plasma background. Both direct and indirect interactions infl…

This paper further analyses the EDGE2D-EIRENE simulations presented by [Chankin et al (2017 Nucl. Mater. Energy 12 273], of L-mode JET plasmas in vertical-vertical (VV) and vertical-horizontal (VH) divertor configurations. As expected, the simulated outer divertor ionisation source peaks near the separatrix in VV …

The operation of a tokamak designed to test the sustainability of a thermonuclear grade plasma like the International Tokamak Experimental Reactor (ITER) presents several challenges. Among them is the necessity of fuelling the plasma to reach the density required to generate enough fusion power to achieve Q = 10 and, at the same time, to protect th…

Ultrafast irradiation can drive the electrons in a material out of thermal equilibrium with the nuclei, producing hot, transient electronic states that modify the interatomic potential energy surface. We present, for the first time, a rigorous formulation of two-temperature molecular dynamics that can accommodate these electronic effects in the fo…

Ray-tracing techniques are applied to bolometry, a diagnostic particularly sensitive to machine geometry due to the effect of volume sampling. Sightlines from the ASDEX-Upgrade bolometer foils were ray-traced with a path tracing algorithm, where the optical path is represented by a statistical bundle of ray paths connecting the foil surface with th…
