    Abstract

    Tungsten is an important metal in nuclear fusion reactors. It will be used in the divertor component of ITER (Latin for ‘the way’). The Tungsten Project aims to calculate partial and total DR rate coefficients for the isonuclear sequence of Tungsten. The calculated data will be made available as and when they are produced via the open access database OPEN-ADAS in the standard adf09 and adf48 file formats. We present our progress thus far, detailing calculational methods, and showing comparisons with other available data. We conclude with plans for the future.
