Description

In the past decade, Thailand has been active in fusion research. Thailand Institute of Nuclear technology has been taking a central role for this research and development. Center for Plasma and Nuclear Fusion Technology (CPaF) was set up as a collaborating network between TINT and nineteen academic and research institutes withing Thailand. Four main task forces were identified, namely, (i) theory and simulation, (ii) preparation for Thailand Tokamak-1 (iii) application and innovation, and (iv) future generation engagement. One activity of this collaboration is organizing ASEAN School for plasma and Nuclear Fusion. The first school started in 2015 and since then runs annually. It accept participants from Thailand and ASEAN countries. Lecturers in the school has been kindly supported by CEA, NIFS, ASIPP and IAEA. Another ongoing activity is a reconstruction of a tokamak once known as HT-6M, which has been donated to TINT from ASIPP, China. This magnetic confined plasma tokamak is being overhauled and will be installed at TINT by 2021. It is expected to be a research facility and training ground for fusion community in Thailand and ASEAN. Area for Research and development are on, for example, plasma instability, advanced plasma diagnostics, advanced materials for diverter, and novel applications of plasma.
