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.

In GAMMA 10/PDX, the divertor simulation experiment has been performed recently. Ion cyclotron range of frequency (ICRF) waves are used for plasma production and ion heating. It is necessary for obtaining better controllability and extending the operational regime to understand the excitation, propagation, and absorption of the waves. The density fluctuations accompanied by the ICRF waves propagating in the inner region of plasma has been measured by using a microwave reflectometer on the antenna-phasing experiments, where the propagation of the ICRF waves is actively controlled. The phase difference between two axially separated ICRF antennas remarkably affects the global plasma parameters. The density fluctuation caused by the interfered ICRF waves is shown to depend clearly on the phase difference between the waves excited from two antennas. The availability of a reflectometer for the evaluation of the internal wave propagation is shown.
