Research news from the division Plasma Edge and Wall

22.10.2020: New insights into I-mode plasmas: pedestal relaxation events
In ASDEX Upgrade pedestal relaxation events present in the I-mode confinement regime have been investigated for the first time [more]
22.9.2020: SOFT Innovation Prize for Alexander von Müller
Tungsten-fibre reinfoced copper: Innovative material for heat sinks / renowned prize of the European Commission [more]
3.9.2020: Liquid Tin as a Divertor Material
For application as divertor target materials, liquid metals, for example tin, are interesting as an alternative to solids. In recent experiments, however, tin displayed a number of unexpected effects in contact with hydrogen plasmas. [more]
08.07.2020: How does the I-mode function?
The I-mode is an attractive confinement regime for future tokamak based fusion reactors. [more]
23.04.2020: Experimental validation for turbulence widening the plasma-wall-interaction area
The hot fusion plasma transfers a part of the generated heat to the plasma facing components. The size of the area of the interaction between the plasma and the wall is a critical parameter. [more]
19.2.2020: Four young E2M scientists receive EUROfusion grants
This year four young scientists from E2M were successful in obtaining EUROfusion grants. [more]
27.1.2020: Tungsten-copper composite materials for plasma-facing components
E2M scientist Alexander von Müller received the 2019 Innovation Award of the German Copper Institute for his work regarding tungsten-copper composites. [more]
