France and Japan Team up for ITER

The International Associated Laboratory “France Japan Magnetic Fusion Laboratory” (FJ-MFL) was set up on October 22nd in Fukuoka, Japan. Initially planned to run for four years, the FJ-MFL will be devoted to the modeling and simulation of turbulent transport in plasmas in ITER, the experimental nuclear fusion reactor which is due to begin construction in 2008 in southern France’s Cadarache research center. This issue is of huge importance for the successful confinement of plasma in the reactor. This new international laboratory will be jointly run by Sanae I. Itoh, professor at the University of Kyushu, and Sadruddin Benkadda, senior researcher at the Laboratory for Physics of Ionic and Molecular Interactions (P2IM: CNRS / Université Aix-Marseille I).
