Toolbox for fast detection and tracking of dust particles in tokamaks

Sourcing new fusion technologies everywhere in Europe to foster your innovation…

Abstract

Monitoring the dust within a tokamak is quite challenging: dust particles in the transitory state measure only few microns and despite their high thermal radiation are quite challenging to be characterized in terms of speed, acceleration and change of direction. For years the plasma physicists of Institut Jean Lamour and then the spin-off APREX Solutions developed measurements tools to carry out truly statistical multi-physics investigations based on the analysis of thousands of tokamak discharges in all kinds of conditions. This solution able to track and analyze images and videos simultaneously and in real is suitable for many non-fusion usecases.

Description of the Technology

Researchers of the Jean Lamour institute (Lorraine University, France), have developed measurements tools to carry out truly statistical multi-physics investigations based on the analysis of thousands of tokamak discharges in all kinds of conditions.. They decided to found their company to focus on the development of algorithms and software for process monitoring, optimization and securitization .Based on the video tracking software developed to study fusion plasmas (TRACE algorithm), APREX Solutions developed the Track software, that tracks and analyzes images and videos.

Innovation and advantages of the offer

The main benefit of this toolbox is that it can detect and track many objects with very different motion characteristics (difference of velocities, direction changes, sudden accelerations). The ergonomic and intuitive interface allows to analyze any video (Black & White, colored, HD, UHD, from fast imaging camera, infrared camera, microscope, telescope; with any encoding format) and adapt the tool to any situation

Non-fusion Applications

Analyzing multiple objects with very different motion characteristics is a strong painpoint in many industries and research laboratories. In general, all markets and applications requiring a high-performance, reliable vision system (capture, analysis) for parameters tracking, quality control and process understanding could use this technology. It could be for example metal working, automotive, electronics, agrifood, pharmaceuticals, chemicals and fluidics.

EUROfusion Heritage

Monitoring the dust within a tokamak is quite challenging: dust particles in the transitory state measure only few microns and despite their high thermal radiation are quite challenging to be characterized in term of speed, acceleration and change of direction. But the algorithm allowed the monitoring of them. Developed by the plasma physicists of Institut Jean Lamour (which is also EUROfusion Linked Third Party), these plasma monitoring techniques have been successfully used to investigate the generation and transport of dust particles in the ASDEX Upgrade and TEXTOR tokamaks (reference of contracts: EFDA WP12-IPH-A03-2-11/PS-01/CEA & EFDA WP13-IPH-A03-P2-01/CEA/PS), to investigate the dust dynamics in the Pilot-PSI facility (EURATOM-CfP-WP14-ER-01/VR-01 and EURATOM-CfP-WP15-IPH-WPPFC) and finally the properties of plasma filaments in the edge of the COMPASS tokamak (contract EURATOM WP17-ER-CEA-08).

  1. This is a superb piece, I found your weblog browsing internet for a related theme and came to this. I couldnt come across to much supplementary information on this piece, so it was pleasant to find this one. I will certainly end up being back again to check out some other posts that you have another time.

  3. Большая часть из скважин по завершении проведения восстановительного комплекса процедур могут быть снова введены в текущую эксплуатацию. Тем более что стоимость объекта данных работ в десятки раз ниже стоимости самих сооружений.
    Обеспечено повышение сбыта водозаборной скважины не менее тридцати процентовЫ от существующего на момент запуска дел.

    В восьмидесяти процентов случаях скважины возобновляются до начальных данных при включении в применение скважины, что несомненно является альтернативой бурения новой скважины.

    Сотрудники нашей компания по Очистке водяных емкостей и Обследованию и диагностика водозаборных скважин предлагаем свои услуги всем, как частным так и общественным компаниям.

  4. Very nice post. Ive really enjoyed visiting your blog posts. Whatever the case I’ll be subscribing to your feed and i also hope you write again soon! Thanks, I’ll try and visit often. Happy new year!

  5. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. However think about if you added some great photos or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this blog could definitely be one of the best in its field. Good blog!

  6. They want it to exist as an object that really has no any importance to anything at all. Some think it as just plain odd to allow these kinds of things to occur alas they do anyway even when you dont want it to but thats just the way it is.

  7. Hi 🙂 that they will get bored and forget about you. for this reason, try to make a list of topics that you wish to share, things that bloggers love to read about, techniques that attract more readers and things to avoid. this Have you considered promoting your blog? add it to SEO Directory right now 🙂

  8. Mornin ! I had subscribed your website for interesting content, I am also going to start a blog on health product vigrx plus , you can also get some unique content for me on cheap vigrx plus. Ciao!

  9. Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they just dont know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
