Bernard Pégourié, physicist and mountaineer

The worldwide fusion community mourns Bernard Pégourié, of France's Institute for Magnetic Fusion Research (CEA-IRFM), who passed away on 25 November following a mountain climbing accident.

A passionate mountaineer, Bernard Pégourié, of France's Institute for Magnetic Fusion Research (CEA-IRFM) was a world-renowned specialist of plasma-wall interactions and hydrogen ice pellet injection. (Click to view larger version...)
A passionate mountaineer, Bernard Pégourié, of France's Institute for Magnetic Fusion Research (CEA-IRFM) was a world-renowned specialist of plasma-wall interactions and hydrogen ice pellet injection.
An astrophysicist by training, Bernard entered the world of fusion research in 1988 and dedicated his work to plasma-wall interactions, becoming an expert on hydrogen ice pellet injection.

He was a brilliant physicist and an excellent "science communicator" with a unique talent for simplifying complex issues. He was involved in several training programs in France and abroad.

A passionate mountaineer, he was the victim of a 15-metre fall in the Gorges du Verdon, not far from ITER and Cadarache. Bernard Pégourié was 60 and was set to retire in the coming weeks. He will be sorely missed by his mountaineer friends and his colleagues in the fusion world. ITER extends its condolences to his family.
