Technical Paper / Selected papers from IAEA-NFRI Technical Meeting on Data Evaluation for Atomic, Molecular and Plasma-Material Interaction Processes in Fusion, September 4-7, 2012, Daejeon, Republic of Korea
The Atomic and Molecular Data Unit of the International Atomic Energy Agency collaborates with an international network of data centers and fusion laboratories to support the production, compilation, and evaluation of atomic, molecular, and plasma-surface interaction (AM/PSI) data relevant to fusion energy research. In recent years, there have been increasing requests from the fusion community for the development of internationally recommended libraries of AM/PSI data for fusion, and the unit has increased its effort to promote the assessment of data quality by organizing a series of meetings on the relevant issues. Meeting participants from the AM/PSI data community developed plans for increased collaboration on the evaluation and recommendation of AM/PSI data. The discussions, conclusions, and future plans are summarized here.
