NEA issues call to action in report on nuclear cost reductions
A new report from the Paris-based OECD Nuclear Energy Agency declares that nuclear power is needed for countries to meet their Paris Agreement decarbonization and energy security policy goals, but that governmental support for a rapid reduction in the cost of new nuclear capacity through the creation of certain policy frameworks is likely necessary.

A system for electron cyclotron resonance plasma heating (ECRH) has been recently installed at the GDT (Gas Dynamic Trap) facility at Budker Institute. The system is based on two 5.5-mm gyrotrons and is designed to deliver two microwave beams with total power of 700 kW and X-mode polarization that are absorbed at the fundamental cyclotron harmonic. A significant increase of basic plasma parameters (energy content, electron temperature, neutron flux) during the injection of microwave radiation has been registered. In particular, the on-axis electron temperature was increased from 200 eV to 600 eV in several shots with ECRH, which establishes a new record for this class of magnetic installation.
