EUROfusion announces the successful completion of third and final series of deuterium-tritium experiments at the UKAEA’s Joint European Torus.
This campaign was all about studying the processes that will come into play in future fusion power plants. Scientists investigated fuel retention in walls and how to counter it, the effect of fusion neutrons on electronics together with CERN, controlling how heat is spread out in the exhaust and more. A leap ahead in our understanding of #fusionenergy.
The Lithuanian Energy Institute joined the JET activities in 2012, when preparations for the calibration campaign of the neutron detectors in the JET reactor took place. Participation in the JET research program allowed to engage not only in numerical studies, but also to participate in the JET experiment campaigns, where LEI has been performing data analysis of the plasma power distribution in the JET reactor since 2014.
