Deuterium, tritium, superconducting magnets, plasma ...the realization of ITER will involve incredibly complex technology and these terms are part of the daily experience for all employees here on site. Do you have questions about these subjects that you've never dared to ask?
The Communications Office has launched "Inside ITER", a series of internal seminars by and for ITER employees. An ITER staff member is invited to give a 30 minute presentation about his or her area of expertise. This presentation is followed by another 30 minutes of question-and-answer time with the audience.
If you want to learn more about fusion, its history, the development of ITER, or the science involved, do not miss "Inside ITER".
If you have knowledge about a particular aspect of ITER that you would like to share with your peers, please let us know; you could be part of the next "Inside ITER" seminar.
Make a note in your diary:
The first "Inside ITER" is called "The Basics of Fusion", and will be given by David Campbell, Assistant DDG for Fusion Science and Technology (FST). It will take place on 12 March from 11.00 to 12.00 in the Salle René Gravier.
On 2 April from 14.00 to 15.00, "Inside ITER" will feature Gary Johnson, DDG for the Tokamak Department, who will talk about the Tokamak and what its major scientific and technological challenges are. return to Newsline #70
