  1. PhD Opportunity at UKAEA Culham(Modelling of JET ECE Diagnostic Data)Darren McDonald

  2. The Energy Problem • In the last two years, growth in Chinese consumption has exceeded the total German consumption

  3. Fusion as a solution • The amount of lithium contained in a laptop battery, combined with less than half a bathtub of water, will be able to provide enough fusion fuel to supply one person’s energy for 30 years.

  4. The Tokamak

  5. Plasma Diagnosis

  6. Integrated Diagnostic Analysis Interferometry inversion LIDAR Te

  7. Electron Cyclotron Emission k|| B y e k v|| • Electrons in a field radiate • EM radiation propagates in the plasma: k  B:O-mode (E || B) , X-mode (E  B) • Emission & absorption occurs B(r) optically thick, thermal plasma I  T Te(r) I() General properties

  8. This PhD • Modelling ECE diagnostics at JET using SPECE • Install SPECE code and use it to model JET shots • Add models of diagnostics onto SPECE • Install and optimise module into integrated system • Exploit physics capabilities of method • Reconstruct JET temperature profiles • Study impact of non-thermal electron distributions in JET • Study of system for use in ITER • ITER is the next big step for fusion (project unites EU, Japan, Russia, South Korea, India, US and China) • To be built in Southern France, operational by end of 2018

  9. ITER • Now is an exciting time to join tokamak fusion research!
