1st TIF Workshop (Technology for Inertial Fusion)

We are pleased to announce the 1st TIF Workshop (Technology for Inertial Fusion), a satellite meeting of the 26th SOFT (Symposium On Fusion Technology) in Oporto, Portugal.

It will be a one day meeting held on Tuesday the 28th of September to promote: the study of IFE technology, knowledge exchange between groups of physicists that carry out technical and managerial work for large scale facilities and collaborations between IFE and MCF. Please see the agenda for more details.

The Workshop will be relevant to research laboratories in the European KiT programme for IFE, large scale laser and particle beam facilities and industries who can provide services or products relevant to IFE, such as design work, modelling, testing, vacuum technology, materials, cryogenics, etc.

This event is being organized in association with the Large Facility Technology Network (LFTN), launched two years ago by Fridrich Wagner, former president of the European Physical Society (EPS).

This workshop is coordinated by

Jonathan Davies
Tito Mendonça
Manolo Perlado
Vladimir Tikhonchuk

Please contact us if you are interested. We believe that large projects such as HIPER, ELI, LMJ, PETAL, ITER, X-FEL and FAIR should all be represented. This would help to promote knowledge exchange on important subjects, such as materials for the first wall, blankets, tritium technology, robotics, cryogenics, large-scale high-power laser systems, target fabrication, management, etc.
