Fukiushima Daiichi: 10 years on

It was a rather normal day back on March 11, 2011, at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant before 2:45 p.m. That was the time when the Great Tohoku Earthquake struck, followed by a massive tsunami that caused three reactor meltdowns and forever changed the nuclear power industry in Japan and worldwide. Now, 10 years later, much has been learned and done to improve nuclear safety, and despite many challenges, significant progress is being made to decontaminate and defuel the extensively damaged Fukushima Daiichi reactor site. This is a summary of what happened, progress to date, current situation, and the outlook for the future there.

We overview the status of atomic and molecular data base and data activities for fusion research at JAEA(Japan Atomic Energy Agency). The compiled data base is consisted of atomic collision data and spectral data. The collision data base have been complied and evaluated in the data base JEAMDL(Japanese Evaluated Atomic and Molecular Data Library). For spectral data, several monograph have been published for highly charged heavy atoms. The production of atomic and molecular data relevant to current and future fusion devices also presented.
