Research results presented at the SOFT-2020 conference


On September 18-23, a large international conference on thermonuclear technologies (SOFT-2020, was held for the first time in a remote format. The Director of ITER’s report opened the conference, and the latest results from leading thermonuclear installations and laboratory research from around the world were presented. The laboratory staff took part in the conference: Y. Gasparyan, D. Yelets, A. Dmitriev. In particular, the reports presented the first measurements of the yield of deuterium from co-deposited in plasma deuterium-tungsten layers under the action of laser radiation of different power and an analysis of the stability of materials facing the plasma to laser radiation. These results are the initial stage in developing a system for remote monitoring of hydrogen isotopes in the walls of the tokamak.
