Item description for Nuclear Fusion Research: Understanding Plasma-Surface Interactions (Springer Series in Chemical Physics) by R. E. H. Clark & D. H. Reiter...

It became clear in the early days of fusion research that the effects of the containment vessel (erosion of "impurities") degrade the overall fusion plasma performance. Progress in controlled nuclear fusion research over the last decade has led to magnetically confined plasmas that, in turn, are sufficiently powerful to damage the vessel structures over its lifetime. This book reviews current understanding and concepts to deal with this remaining critical design issue for fusion reactors. It reviews both progress and open questions, largely in terms of available and sought-after plasma-surface interaction data and atomic/molecular data related to these "plasma edge" issues.

More About R. E. H. Clark & D. H. Reiter

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! R. E. H. Clark is the Head of the Atomic and Molecular Data Unit of the International Atomic Energy Agency. He has an extensive background in the calculation of cross sections for electron impact excitation of atomic ions. He and co-workers at the Los Alamos National Laboratory have developed computational tools for the calculation of atomic structure and cross sections for excitation and ionization of atomic ions. These calculated data have been used in extensive modelling calculations of plasmas for a number of applications, including fusion energy research.

D. Reiter is a professor at the Institute for Laser and Plasmaphysics at Heinrich Heine University DA1/4sseldorf, and at the Forschungszentrum JA1/4lich, Germany. He and co-workers are the authors of the EIRENE Monte Carlo Code for atomic, molecular and surface processes in fusion plasmas, which is currently used in most fusion laboratories, including the international design team for the next step device ITER. His group also initiated and completed the first versions of the B2-EIRENE suit of codes, which, again, has become a standard tool for fusion edge plasma studies allowing to assess a consistent micro-macro model of plasma flow and atomic/molecular kinetics.

Reviews - What do customers think about Nuclear Fusion Research: Understanding Plasma-Surface Interactions (Springer Series in Chemical Physics)?

very technical  Nov 20, 2007
An extremely technical overview of somewhat current research. Includes most of the problems associated with controlled fusion reactions including tritium retention along with the proposed solutions. Contains multiple diagrams that properly illustrate key components and statistics pertaining to their operation. Surprisingly conveys various theoretical ideas like internal walls composed of metals with low melting temperatures to hopefully lessen or rid the design of tritium retention. I would recommend this book only to those with extensive chemical physics training or something equivalent. Not at all easy to read, but communicates material adequately.
