Consultancy Meeting on Atomic Data for Vapour Shielding in Fusion Devices

19-20 March 2018, IAEA Headquarters, Vienna, Austria


Following advice from the Subcommittee on Atomic and Molecular Data of the International Fusion Research Council (IFRC) at its meeting in April 2016 the Atomic and Molecular Data Unit submitted a preliminary proposal for a new IAEA Coordinated Research Project (CRP) to start in 2018 on the topic of Atomic Data for Vapour Shielding in Fusion Devices. After review within the Nuclear Data Section and the Division of Physical and Chemical Sciences the Committee on Coordinated Research Activities (CCRA) accepted the preliminary proposal for a new CRP on Vapour Shielding to start some time in the 2018-2019 biennium.

The present Consultancy Meeting (CM) is being organized to help define the scope and objectives of the new CRP and to write a detailed proposal. Questions for the CM include the following.
