Enhanced support is to be provided in atomic data and analysis for fusion laboratories in Europe and for ITER under a four year Euratom Framework 7 Support Action.
ADAS-EU is a support activity for implementation of atomic data in plasma diagnostics and modelling at fusion laboratories throughout Europe, for management of databases of relevant fundamental and applied data and for promotion of key fundamental atomic data calculation and measurement. It will enable improved effectiveness of analysis of existing fusion experiments and prepare for ITER.
The primary scientific objectives are provision of analysis tools and necessary atomic/molecular data for spectroscopy and broadband radiation detection at all wavelengths in all plasma regions. Provision of derived atomic/molecular data for plasma models, including passive emission, near surface emitters, beams, beam penetrated plasma, field disturbed atoms and ions, electron distribution functions, fast particles, slowing down particle distributions and beam calibration.
ADAS-EU will work with all Euratom Fusion Laboratories and will place dedicated research fellows for extended periods at the following locations:
- ITER via Fusion for Energy
- Commissariat à l'énergie atomique Cadarache
- Forschungszentrum Jülich in der Helmholtz Gemeinschaft
- Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik
as well as maintaining a dedicated presence at:
A number of specialists will also be engaged to perform bespoke atomic data calculations and measurements.
