Marco de Baar to chair ITPA specialist group on ITER diagnostics

November 12th 2018

The International Tokamak Physics Activity (ITPA) has appointed DIFFER group leader Prof. Marco de Baar as chair of its Realtime Specialists Working Group (RT-SWG). The ITPA is an international framework organised by the global ITER fusion project to coordinate fusion research. ITPA activities prepare the broad physics basis needed for ITER design and operation and members of the ITPA groups are chosen by each ITER party as representative top experts of their sub-fields. In the coming three years, Marco de Baar will focus on formulating sensor models that will be used in the numerical simulation of control loops of the ITER plasma.
