Zahlreiche Gäste bei der 30-Jahr-Feier für TEXTOR

30 Years of TEXTOR

TEXTOR was Jülich’s large-scale fusion experiment for 30 years. The results obtained made a significant impact on international fusion research. Guests from all over the world took part in the official function at Forschungszentrum Jülich today to mark the anniversary, and, at the same time, the shutdown of the experiment in December 2013. Together with Jülich scientists and their partners, they looked back on more than a quarter of a century of fusion research at Jülich. More: 30 Years of TEXTOR …

Nuclear Fusion: Jülich's Role in ITER

Forschungszentrum Jülich will lead a consortium of European partners to design a measuring system for the fusion experiment ITER. The facility is currently under construction in Cadarache in the south of France as part of a major international cooperation. The consortium signed a Framework Partnership Agreement with the European Union’s Joint Undertaking for ITER and the Development of Fusion Energy (F4E) to develop the ITER core plasma Charge Exchange Recombination Spectroscopy (CXRS) diagnostic. This measuring system will help determine the composition and temperature of the plasma in the vacuum vessel. The Framework Partnership Agreement runs for four years with an F4E contribution of 4.9 million euros. More: Nuclear Fusion: Jülich's Role in ITER …

Fusion Experiment TEXTOR: The End of an Era

For thirty years, the results produced at Jülich’s large-scale device TEXTOR have considerably advanced international fusion research. Yesterday at 18:00, a plasma discharge provided science with data for the very last time. Now that TEXTOR has been shut down, Jülich fusion research will turn its full attention to material issues and problems associated with continuous operation – and thus to the remaining hurdles on the way towards environmentally friendly and safe power plants generating energy based on the principle of the sun’s fire.
