Researchers from LLPS have been participating in international projects within the EUROfusion organization, and earlier EFDA, for many years, aimed at mastering the fusion for the needs of modern energy. You can read about the history of this research here (link).
Currently, project participation is focused on the Eurofusion WPPFC program: Preparation of efficient PFC operation for ITER and DEMO, which is a continuation of previous projects, as well as preparation for the next step in research on the implementation of LIBS in tokamaks, after successful installation on the FTU tokamak under the project MST conducted in 2018-2019.
In 2019, research conducted at IFPILM under the Eurofusion WPPFC project: Preparation of efficient PFC operation for ITER and DEMO can be divided into two thematic groups: (1) works related to the study of hydrogen isotope retention on samples simulating codeposit in fusion reactors and (2) experiments aimed at detailed study of the dynamics of the plasma generated by a two-pulse laser from tungsten samples (simulating the divider material of ITER reactor), as well as the surface effects of these interactions.
The task implemented as part of the Eurofusion WPMST2 project: Preparation of exploitation of MSTs was a continuation and accomplishing of the work carried out in the previous year, which involved performing DP LIBS measurements using a remote-controlled head on a tokamak mock-up. An analogous experiment was carried out in 2019, but this time inside the FTU tokamak to obtain fuel retention diagnostics. Thus, these were the first in the world LIBS measurements made in-situ using a dedicated system on an experimental fusion reactor system.
