Success StoriesUkrainian Scientists Develop Sensors for International Fusion Energy Research(25/37)
Through a series of collaborative research projects (including several STCU projects), the Magnetic Sensor Laboratory (MSL) of the Lviv Polytechnic National University has been building a strong reputation within the global nuclear science community. MSL now has several collaborative efforts that will involve this Ukrainian laboratory into the ITER program through European collaborations.
STCU #3535 is one such example, a project, financed by the European Union and involving collaborators from members of Association EUROATOM (CEA, France, and Institute of Plasma Physics, Czech Republic). The project will develop unique magneto-measuring instrumentation for extreme operation conditions inside the future ITER nuclear fusion reactor. The novelty of the instrumentation, with its self-diagnostics and self-correction capabilities, will allow accurate magnetic field measurements under the harsh conditions of the fusion reactor environment and also allow long-term operation of the instrumentation without its replacement.
