Delegation VNIIEF took part in the International XL (Zvenigorod) Conference on Plasma Physics and Controlled Nuclear Fusion (TCB).
Eugene Grabowski (TRINITY) and Sergei Bel'kov (ILFI VNIIEF) made a report on the beginning of creation in Russia the world's largest pulsed systems for inertial confinement fusion.
In TRINITY construction of Electro-fusion set "Baikal" to conduct experiments on the ignition of fusion targets. It is planned that the facility will be four times greater than the power the largest to date in the world set Z (Sandia National Laboratories, USA). The cost of construction of a facility will total 4 billion rubles.
It was also noted that in VNIIEF work began on the creation of the world's most powerful laser facility UFL-2M laser pulse energy 2.8 MJ (for comparison, the energy of the laser pulse the most powerful in the world at the time of installation NIF, the United States is 2 MJ). The cost of this plant should reach 45 billion rubles.
Conference was organized by the Scientific Council of RAS on Plasma Physics, Scientific Council on the complex problem "Physics of Low Temperature Plasma", General Physics Institute. AM Academy of Sciences, Joint Institute for High Temperatures, Russian Academy of Sciences, Research and Technology Center "PLASMAIOFAN" and Moscow State University. MV University, as well as the ITER Project Center of the State Corporation "Rosatom".
The conference covered a variety of physical and technical issues related to the research of plasma and fusion. They discussed various aspects of the magnetic confinement of high temperature plasma and inertial fusion, the physical processes in low-temperature plasmas, plasma physical problems and beam technologies, as well as the participation in the creation of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor ITER.
VNIIEF delegation presented at the conference dedicated to the formation of the emitting plasma, high energy density in the interaction of high magnetic fields with metal (Sergey Garanin ITMF VNIIEF), numerical studies of implosion stranded ship in experiments at Z (Andrey Repin and Boris Orlov, NTTSF VNIIEF) , computational research work blasting current breakers at high densities of energy flow (Vladimir Drums, NTTSF VNIIEF) experiments to create low-density magnetized plasma in the space of about 100 liters (Vladimir Chernyshev, NTTSF VNIIEF), and the methods of measuring the electron density for the low-pressure plasma (Innocent Filatov , NTTSF VNIIEF).
