Preparatory Consultancy Meeting of the Vapour Shielding CRP

Meeting Report

A Consultancy Meeting was held from 19 – 20 March 2018 at IAEA Headquarters in Vienna to review data needs for modelling vapour shielding in fusion devices and delimit the scope of a possible coordinated research project (CRP) on that topic. The Scientific Secretary was Christian Hill (Unit Head, Atomic and Molecular Data Unit, IAEA).
