Open Access research with a real impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde research outputs.

The Energy Systems Research Unit (ESRU) within Strathclyde's Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering is producing Open Access research that can help society deploy and optimise renewable energy systems, such as wind turbine technology.

Abstract

Future magnetic fusion energy devices, will have both very high Z (tungsten) and low Z (beryllium) plasma facing components, are setting the agenda for current atomic data needs. Data for the light species are in good shape but the heavy species present some challenges. We outline an approach for systematic heavy element data production for fusion applications in addition to techniques for handling the large amount of data in modeling codes efficiently.
