  • Alpha particles in fusion research : Report on the IAEA Technical Committee Meeting on Alpha Particle Physics in Thermonuclear Reactors, Trieste, Italy, 10-14 May 1993


This publication reports on the IAEA meeting held in Trieste in May 1993 to discuss the current issues of physics of alpha particles and other fast ions produced as a result of fusion reactions, neutral beam injection and RF-heating. Forty papers were presented and the following major topics were discussed: (i) behaviour of fast ions in experimental devices; (ii) Alfvén instabilities driven by fast ions; (iii) ion-cyclotron emission from tokamak plasmas; (iv) influence of sawtooth oscillations on fast ions; (v) diagnostics for alpha particles.
