Satellite meeting

A satellite meeting: “14th International Workshop on Hydrogen Isotopes in Fusion
Reactor materials” is being organised by Brian Wirth and David Donovan at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville from June 25 to 27, 2018. Please follow this link for more information.


This workshop is a satellite meeting of the 23rd International Conference on Plasma Surface Interactions in Controlled Fusion Devices (23rd-PSI) held on June 18 through 22, 2018 at Princeton University in Princeton, NJ, USA. It follows the tradition of the series of the last thirteen International Workshops on Hydrogen Isotopes in Fusion Reactor Materials (H-Workshop) that were organized as satellite workshops to PSI conferences. As its predecessors it is intended as a platform for experts in the field to present and discuss the latest scientific results. To fulfill its scope as a workshop ample time for discussion will be provided. The workshop will focus on experiments and modeling of hydrogen isotope interactions with fusion-reactor materials with particular emphasis on fuel balance in reactors and the development of tritium removal techniques. As with previous Hydrogen Workshops, this meeting does not have an associated publication, but presenters will be encouraged to provide their presentation files for distribution to the participants.

Topics to be addressed include:

  • Hydrogen isotope recycling, migration, retention, and release from fusion reactor materials and co-deposited layers
  • Tritium removal techniques
  • Influence of plasma impurities and seeded impurities on fuel retention
  • Influence of neutron damage on hydrogen retention in materials

Important Dates

  • March 19, 2018 Abstract Submission Deadline
  • April 6, 2018 Author Notification
  • April 20, 2018 Deadline for Registration
  • June 25-27, 2018 Hydrogen Workshop at UT-Knoxville
