ELM Mitigation Physics Meeting

Seeking an international consensus on the mitigation of Edge Localized Modes (ELMs), more than 40 specialists from around the world participated in a tele-video conference organized by the ITER Organization in Cadarache last Friday.

One of the main issues discussed was whether the current plan for ELM mitigation is sufficient to ensure the success of the ITER mission and in particular, whether coils to induce Resonant Magnetic Perturbations (RMP) located in the vacuum vessel water-cooling channel should be incorporated into the design. The IO has been evaluating the technical feasibility of incorporating such RMP coils.
