NCRIS Progress Report 1 - July-Dec 2013
This document is a brief report on the activities within Australian Plasma Fusion Research Facility between July 1 st 2013 and December 31 st 2013 during which time operations and maintenance were supported in part by NCRIS funding. The Facility comprises two devices, the H-1NF heliac and the MAGPIE plasma interaction experiment, and associated instrumentation (‘diagnostics’), data accessibility, power, heating and cooling systems. Although considerable effort was expended in finishing off the remaining milestones of the Super Science upgrade in the second semester of 2013, this had little effect on the availability of the facilities. The highlights and activities are summarised below.
