A+M & PMI Data Evaluation

The IAEA A+M Data Unit is devoted to the development of databases for atomic, molecular and plasma-material interaction (A+M/PMI) properties that are relevant for fusion energy research. The unit organizes coordinated research projects (CRP), consultants' meetings (CM) and technical meetings (TM) to promote international collaboration among scientists on data activities. In particular, the series of TMs of the international data centre network (DCN) have played an important role in connecting data producers of the A+M/PSI physics community with data users of the plasma physics community for more than 30 years.

Data evaluation has always been an important topic in the IAEA meetings including the DCN meetings. Since the beginning of the A+M data unit, data users from plasma modeling community have expressed the need for the standard or a recommended data library for important fusion relevant data. However, the data evaluation was not actively pursued due to many difficulties involved in the evaluation procedures.

Finally, in the 21st meeting of DCN in September 2011, several data centers expressed the interest in working together towards data evaluation, which led to the first IAEA CM at NIFS (Japan, February 2012), the second IAEA meeting (TM) at NFRI (Korea, September 2012) and the third IAEA meeting (TM) in China (2013). The Unit hopes to work with the AM/PSI data community and fusion community to establish the IAEA Standard AM/PSI Data Libary for Fusion Applications.
