Atomic, molecular and plasma-material interaction processes play an important role in the energy balance, confinement and stability of a thermonuclear plasma. The primary goal of this Knowledge base is to identify the needs in the atomic, molecular and plasma-surface interaction data sets for fusion research, both magnetic confinement fusion and inertial confinement fusion studies, to provide a direct link to the relevant data sources and present more information on the available data sets.

IAEA Coordinated Research Projects (CRP)

The Coordinated Research Projects (CRPs) are normally three to five-year joint projects of a group of (10-15) laboratories, research teams or institutions, performing coordinated research to achieve certain well defined goal. The CRPs generally produce a significant amount of new data on the collision processes or structural properties of elements or materials relevant to fusion energy research, or perform detailed critical assessments of the existing data and selection of sets of "recommended" data (or best available at the time of assessment). The CRP results of adequate accuracy and completeness are stored in the IAEA numerical database ALADDIN and published in the IAEA publication "Atomic and Plasma-Material Interaction Data for Fusion":APID Series.
