Implementing ITER-like targets as the  WEST divertor is the purpose of the project. The divertor is one of the key components of a tokamak: it is the divertor that receives most of the heat fluxes and particles coming from the central plasma. The associated heat fluxes are high (10-20 ... More »
The “Measurements and Control” project deals with machine operation, plasma control and operation and physics analysis. For that purpose, this project is in charge of the integration of the whole set of diagnostics inside and outside the vacuum vessel; the data access and communication ... More »
The goal of the WEST Project (Tungsten (W) Environment (E) Steady-state (S) Tokamak (T)) is to transform Tore Supra into a test bench for ITER in order to minimize the risks involved in the operation of a divertor. The magnetic configuration in X point will be obtained by installing poloidal ... More »
A large part of the IRFM team is involved in the WEST Project. Approximately 100 people are working full time on the project.     WEST Organization Chart.pdf
