The W7-X superconducting coils have been cooled down to 4 K. Evacuation of the vacuum vessel has started and the leak search is ongoing. Visit the website of the ETI focusing on stellarator-heliotron fusion devices (SH) to download the April 2015 Stellarator News here.
The 12th International Workshop on Beryllium Technology organised by the ETI focusing on fusion materials (FM), will take place on Jeju Island, Korea, on 10-11 September 2015. The objective of this workshop is to disseminate results of research and technology development in areas relevant to beryllium utilisation in nuclear power systems, both fission and fusion. Papers presenting original research in these areas are solicited for presentation and publication. Deadline for receipt of abstracts is 1 June 2015. More...
The 20th International Stellarator-Heliotron Workshop (ISHW) will take place in Greifswald, 5-9 October 2015. The Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics will host this workshop, which is planned to take place against the background of the first experiments in Wendelstein 7-X under the ETI focusing on stellarator-heliotron fusion devices.
