ADAS for fusion in Europe
ADAS-EU will be a support activity for implementation of atomic data in plasma diagnostics and modelling at fusion laboratories throughout Europe, for management of databases of relevant fundamental and applied data and for promotion of key fundamental atomic data calculation and measurement. It will enable improved effectiveness of analysis of existing fusion experiments and prepare for ITER. The primary scientific objectives are provision of analysis tools and necessary atomic/molecular data for spectroscopy and broadband radiation detection at all wavelengths in all plasma regions.
ADAS-EU developed universal exchange models and extended collisional-radiative models modelling, thus increasing reliability of cross-sectional data and allowing to predict beam emissivity for tungsten ions. Furthermore, new methods and package codes allowed to achieve the highest precision levels for collisional-radiative models of medium-weight elements. Such models were also developed for molecules such as hydrogen isotopomers. Isotopomers are isotopic isomers. Project final results constituted reports on the main themes probed, covering scientific, technical and implementation issues.
