The Joint European Torus (JET, Culham, UK) is the largest tokamak in the world. JET has been upgraded over the years and recently it has also become a test facility of the components designed for ITER, the next step fusion machine under construction in Cadarache (France). At JET, the neutron emission profile of Deuterium (D) or Deuterium-Tritium (D…

In this work, we generalise linear magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) stability theory to include equilibrium pressure anisotropy in the uid part of the analysis. A novel `single-adiabatic' (SA) uid closure is presented which is complementary to the usual `double-adiabatic' (CGL) model and has the advantage of naturally reproducing exactly the MHD spectrum …

The design of a divertor target for DEMO remains one of the most challenging engineering tasks to be overcome on the path to fusion power. Under the European DEMO programme, a promising concept known as Thermal Break has been developed at CCFE. This concept is a variation of the ITER tungsten divertor in which the pure Copper interlayer between Cop…

The requirement for maintenance in areas with relatively high shutdown dose rate fields is a key issue to address in the design and engineering of ITER, next generation devices and future commercial fusion reactors. In order to estimate the shutdown dose rate during maintenance and intervention scenarios CCFE’s Mesh Coupled implementation of the R…

Verification is the fundamental step that any turbulence simulation code has to be submitted in order to assess the proper implementation of the underlying equations. We have carried out a cross comparison of three flux tube gyrokinetic codes, GENE [F. Jenko et al., Phys. Plasmas 7, 1904 (2000)], GKW [A. G. Peeters et al., Comput. Phys. Commun. 180…

Drift kinetic stabilization of the resistive wall mode (RWM) is computationally investigated using the MHD-kinetic hybrid code MARS-K, following the non-perturbative approach [Liu et al., Phys. Plasmas 15, 112503 (2008)], for both reversed field pinch (RFP) and tokamak plasmas. Various kinetic resonances between the mode and the guiding center drif…

The influence of the ITER-like Wall (ILW) with divertor target plate made of tungsten (W), on plasma performance in JET H-mode is being investigated since 2011 (see [1] and references therein). One of the key issues in discharges with low level of D fuelling is observed accumulation of W in the plasma core, which leads to a reduction in plasma perf…

This study examines clustering and hardening in W–2 at.% Re and W–1 at.% Re–1 at.% Os alloys induced by 2 MeV W + ion irradiation at 573 and 773 K. Such clusters are known precursors to the formation of embrittling precipitates, a potentially life-limiting phenomenon in the oper- ation of fusion reactor components. Increases in hardness were …

The interplay between toroidal rotation u, parallel flow shear u? and perpendicular flow shear ?E in the stabilisation of tokamak turbulence is investigated in non-linear flux-tube gyrokinetic simulations with the GKW code. The non-linear simulations are performed for a reference L-mode DIII-D plasma (the so-called shortfall case) at r/a = 0.8, var…

Understanding the behaviour of solid solutions over wide ranges of temperature and pressure remains a major challenge to both theory and experiment. Here we report a detailed exchange Monte Carlo study using a classical ionic model of the model perovskite parascandolaite-neighborite (K,Na)MgF3 solid solution and its end-members for temperatures in …
