Important presence of IFMIF-DONES at SOFT2022
IFMIF-DONES achieved high visibility at SOFT2022. Numerous researchers linked to our large technological infrastructure contributed their latest research and data to the scientific community.
Donny Domagoj Cosic (Institut Ruđer Bošković) said that the next generation fusion research devices such as DONES require specialized µloss monitors for beam diagnostics. These monitors must operate reliably in a harsh radiation environment, large magnetic fields, and cryogenic temperatures.
Philippe Cara presented an overview of the present design status of the IFMIF-DONES facility putting emphasis on the design status of its Accelerator Systems (AS) focusing on the main challenges and related the R&D programme considered. He seized also the opportunity to present the current status of LIPAc (IFMIF/EVEDA Project) as well as the commonalities/interfaces activities between IFMIF/EVEDA & IFMIF-DONES projects aiming to share the developed know-how and to assure the transfer of the lessons learned.
The prospects for the construction and the commissioning of the IFMIF-DONES Facility in Granada (Spain) was also presented.
IFMIF-DONES would like to expressly congratulate Tonči Tadić, Chair of the International Organising Committee, for the success of the event.
