10th ITER International School
The 10th ITER International School (IIS) will be held at the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) in Daejeon, Korea from 21st to 25th January 2019.
The ITER International School aims to prepare young future scientists/engineers for working in the field of nuclear fusion and in research applications associated with the ITER Project and to provide them with a wide overview of the interdisciplinary skills required by the ITER Project.
Physics and Technology of Power Flux Handling in Tokamaks
This subject has an interdisciplinary character: power flux handling in tokamaks is key challenge for the development of nuclear fusion, but one that can only be resolved through the integration of physics-based approaches to decrease power fluxes on the tokamak wall together with technological developments for tokamak wall components.
Measurements of the power flux at the outer divertor target of the KSTAR tokamak during H-mode plasmas in which ELMs are suppressed by an externally applied three dimensional magnetic field.
