The IPP and ITER

IPP is developing and building sub-components for ITER, is developing operation scenarios with experiments on ASDEX Upgrade as well as with plasma theoretical models and numerical simulations.



Installation work in the plasma vessel. Visible at the bottom are the collector plates of the divertor.

IPP is contributing to the preparation of ITER through the research programme being conducted on its ASDEX Upgrade fusion device. IPP scientists are also maintaining close contact with the ITER group in all physics-oriented questions and are treating special problems for ITER in numerous contract studies.

Examples are:

The ITER Technology and Diagnostics division accommodates the technological development contributed by IPP to ITER: participation in development of neutral particle heating and development of various diagnostics for ITER. Examples:


The division also coordinates the ITER support work from all the other divisions of IPP.
