Welcome to the main page of the 22nd Energetic Particle Physics Topical Group Meeting of the International Tokamak Physics Activity (ITPA) that will take place in Rovaniemi, Finland from 9-11th April 2019.
The general scope of the ITPA Energetic Particle Physics Topical Group is to tackle the qualitatively new physics element of ITER: dominant alpha particle heating. The group shall provide the experimental basis and the theoretical knowledge to give recommendations for both the conventional and advanced scenarios in ITER in the areas of: energetic particle driven instabilities (Alfvén waves and energetic particle modes) and their consequences for plasma heating and the first wall material; development of new fast ion, neutron, and gamma diagnostics unique to ITER; effects of non-axisymmetric magnetic fields such as field ripple, error/perturbation fields; interaction of fast ions with background magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) behaviour; neutral beam injection heating and current drive; and runaway electrons.
Chair of Energetic Particle Physics Topical Group: Don Spong
Co-Chair of Energetic Particle Physics Topical Group: Mirko Salewski
