PROGRAM

14:00 K?roly Szego (Director of KFKI-RMKI Budapest)
Introduction

14:05 Hardo Bruhns (European Commission, EURATOM fusion coordinator)
Fusion Research in Europe: the Next Step
ABSTRACT:
The European fusion programme comprises all research on magnetic
confinement fusion in the Member States of the European Union and the
Countries associated to the Euratom Research and Training Framework
Programme, including Hungary. The programme is coordinated by the European
Commission. Remarkable progress has been achieved over the past decades.
In particular, the Joint European Torus has generated 16 MW of fusion
power for seconds. In the long-term interest of its security of energy
supply and the need for new and improved environmentally benign energy
sources, the European Union is a strong driving force in international
fusion research. Based on the success achieved, the next step in fusion
will be the demonstration of the scientific and technological feasibility
of fusion for a future power plant. Negotiations for a framework for the
possible construction of an International Thermonuclear Experimental
Reactor (ITER) are currently underway with Japan, Russia and Canada.
Europe has tentatively proposed two sites (in France and in Spain) for a
possible offer to host the ITER device which shall produce 400 MW fusion
power in ultimately steady state operation.

14:50 Miklos Porkolab (USA, Director of MIT fusion laboratory)
Overview of Magnetic Fusion Research in the USA: An Opportunity
for the Major Next Step
ABSTRACT:
Fusion energy shows great promise to contribute in a significant way to
securing the energy future of humanity. Fusion offers a safe and
environmentally clean energy source with abundant fuel available to all
nations for thousands of years. Using low activation materials,
radioactive waste from fusion is relatively short lived, and a fusion
power plant would not emit CO2 gases into the atmosphere. The science that
underlies this quest is at the frontier of the physics of complex systems
and provides the basis for understanding the behavior of high temperature
plasmas, the medium in which fusion burn occurs. In recent years the US
magnetic fusion energy program has been reoriented to emphasize science
with the goal of providing a better understanding of energy transport in
high temperature plasmas in various magnetic confinement configurations.
At the same time, exploiting the exciting recent results from both the US
and the world-wide tokamak experiments, reactor design studies have shown
the way to more economical power plant concepts. In this talk I will
summarize various elements of this program, including MIT's contribution,
a paradigm for university involvement in both fusion research and in
educating the next generation of fusion scientists and engineers. Finally,
I will also summarize the outcome of the recent 2002 "Fusion Summer Study"
in Snowmass, Colarado, where it was concluded that the next major step in
fusion research should be a burning plasma program.


15:35 Sandor Zoletnik (KFKI-RMKI, Coordinator of the Hungarian Fusion
Association)
Fusion Research in Hungary
ABSTRACT:
Fusion research was restarted in Hungary in 1999 when the country became
associated to the EURATOM programme. Based on the experience Hungarian
researchers acquired at the MT-1M tokamak and many European fusion
laboratories during the 80's and 90's a fusion Association was formed.
This gives us the possibility to take part in EU experimental and
theoretical work as an equal partner. Fusion research is coordinated by
KFKI-RMKI and focuses on three major topics: plasma turbulence
measurements, pellet-plasma interaction and diagnostics with atomic beams.
There is no fusion facility in Hungary, experiments are done on 5 machines
all over Europe: Germany, Switzerland and the UK. Hungarian researchers
are leading a JET diagnostic upgrade project and take part in the design
of ITER by studying tomographic reconstruction possibilities of the total
radiation profile. The fusion physics programme is complemented by fusion
technology research and development at AEKI, RMKI and MFA. In order to
improve future possibilities of Hungarian research, fusion education has
started at BME in 2002. Groups interested in future work in fusion physics
and technology are welcome.
