Announcement and Call for Presentations

Workshop on Lithium Effects in Plasmas

A workshop on lithium conditioning will take place from Thursday, October 17th, 1996 to Friday, October 18th, 1996 at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory.


Lithium conditioning has proved to be a powerful technique for attaining enhanced performance regimes on TFTR. Mixed results have been obtained on other machines and the underlying physics and chemistry are not well understood.

The goal of the workshop is to bring together interested scientists from the fields of plasma-surface interactions and tokamak physics to share different perspectives on the technical issues involved and to stimulate ideas for experiments that will lead to a deeper understanding of the phenomenon.

Potential topics include:

Review of Li effects

Enhanced performance of TFTR plasmas through Li conditioning

Results for DIII-D, TdeV, Alcator C-Mod, Heliotron

Laboratory studies on lithium conditioning effects

Li/Carbon chemistry and physics

Effects of Li on plasma core; transport

Effects of Li on tritium retention

Effect of Li on transport of recycled deterium to the plasma core

Surface analysis tools available

Implications for experiments on current and futuremachines

Abstracts should be limited to 200 words and submitted to the Chairman, Program Committee ( (address below) by September 20, 1996; earlier submission will be appreciated. E-mail submission is preferred.

Informal presentations of work in progress are encouraged. There will be a significant fraction of time allocated for discussions.

Registration is due by September 20, 1996. Please register early.

Registration Fee: $20.00 (to cover the cost of refreshments, snacks, xerox copying of viewgraphs, summaries, etc.). Visitors from outside the US may pay at the Workshop.

A hotel list and foreign visitor authorization form to enter PPPL have been enclosed. Please contact the Chairman for further information.

Directions from Newark Airport to PPPL (1 hour by car, 1.5 hours by bus):

Take the New Jersey Turnpike South to Exit #9. Then use U.S. Route #1 South for about 20 miles to the Princeton area.

Bus Service: There is frequent airport bus service to the Princeton area from the Newark Airport. Look for the Princeton Airporter booth at the Ground Transportation area of each terminal (for assistance in scheduling call 609-587-6600).

Driving to Hotel: If you rent a car at Newark airport, follow Airport exit signs to the New Jersey Turnpike South (marked NJTP inter-locking letters). Follow any NJTP South sign to the toll plaza and get a toll card from a machine or a person; go south on the NJ Turnpike for about 25 miles. Get off the turnpike at Exit 9 and take the rightmost exit from the toll plaza to Rt. 18 East. Move left to get onto the middle lane of Rt. 18. Follow Rt. 18 for only about half a mile to an overpass, and then exit from the right hand lane after the overpass to Rt. 1 South Princeton. Go south on Rt. 1 for about 15 miles to the Princeton area. Most of the Hotels are on or near Rt. 1. To get to the Forrestal at Princeton (formerly Scanticon), exit Rt. 1 at the large College Road interchange toward the Forrestal Campus (not Forrestal Center) direction, cross over Rt. 1 and the hotel is less than 0.5 miles on the right side (their sign is small, so go slowly).

To get to PPPL from a hotel: Take Rt. 1 and get off at the small exit marked Forrestal Campus/Sayre Drive, between the College Road and Scudders Mill Road exits. Go in Forrestal Campus direction past open gate and then left to PPPL. Stop at 2nd gate (guard station) for check-in to PPPL. On the first day of the meeting, allow 15 minutes for check-in process.

All non-US Citizens: Please fill out the Visitor Authorization Form and mail or fax it back to Betty Carey, P.O. Box 451, Princeton, NJ 08543, or Fax 609-243-3248, by September 20. This will minimize the delay at the guard station.
