PREFACE

This report summarizes the main activities and achieved results of the Association EURATOM/IPP.CR in the year 2007. The Association participates in the joint European effort in mastering controlled fusion by carrying out relevant plasma physics and technology R&D, including participation in JET and other European devices and activities related to the international fusion experiment ITER.

The Association was founded on December 22, 1999 through a contract between the European Atomic Energy Community (EURATOM) represented by the European Commission and the Institute of Plasma Physics, Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic (IPP). Several other institutions have been included in the Research Unit to contribute to the

work programme in physics and technology research:

! Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University in Prague ! Institute of Physical Chemistry, v.v.i., Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic ! Faculty of Nuclear Science and Physical Engineering, Czech Technical University ! Nuclear Physics Institute, v.v.i., Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic ! Nuclear Research Institute, Rez, Plc ! Institute of Applied Mechanics, Brno, Ltd The overall manpower involved in the Association’s fusion research at the end of 2007 was 110, of which 85 (77%) were professionals (i.e. those with a University degree). The total effort expended is about 52 person years of which roughly 61% was devoted to physics tasks and the remaining 39% to underlying technology and technology tasks. The overall 2007 expenditure was about 4.87 M€ (the major part of which, 2.87M€, was spent on the COMPASS project).

Our activities in physics were based on the approved Work Programme 2007 both in experiment and theory. With the tokamak CASTOR decommissioned at the end of 2006, and its successor, the COMPASS tokamak under reinstallation, the fusion-relevant plasma physics was oriented namely to the preparation for scientific exploitation of COMPASS and on research in the framework of international collaborations. The research was focused on the study of phenomena at the plasma edge, part of our activities was devoted to studies of waveplasma interaction and analyses of plasma – fast particles interaction. Some selected atomic processes relevant to fusion plasmas, such as the interaction of molecular ions with first wall elements, were studied in test-bed experiments. The research was performed in collaboration with 17 other Associations (CEA, CIEMAT, Conféderation Suisse, ENEA, Etat Belge, FZK, HAS, IPP, IPPLM, IST, MEdC, ŐAW, TEKES, UKAEA, VR, INRNE.BG, FOM) and JET EFDA.

In the technology area, the R&D was substantially enhanced and focused on the fields Vessel/In Vessel, Tritium Breeding and Materials and Physics Integration. In total 19 Technology / Underlying Technology Tasks were worked upon, mostly exploiting the cyclotron, the fission reactor and computational capabilities of our Association.

In 2007, a significant part of our manpower concentrated on preparation of the IPP site for the arrival of the COMPASS tokamak, its dismantling in Culham Science Centre and the first steps of its reinstallation in Prague. Tokamak COMPASS arrived to Prague on 20th October 2007 and was fixed in its final position on 18th December 2007. For more details see the Appendix to this Annual report.
