Abstract Text:
A progress report on the construction and the already started commissioning of the superconducting stellarator Wendelstein 7-X, presently being built in Greifswald, Germany, will be given [1]. Furthermore, a brief outline of the key physics topics which will be addressed in the first experimental campaign, starting with a short (3 month) limiter phase (OP1.1) in summer 2015 and then being continued with an uncooled divertor phase from summer 2016 till fall 2017, will be given [2]. In particular the 15 month long second operation phase (OP1.2) will provide ample collaboration opportunities, in particular for Universities, for example for building smaller diagnostics, extending the capabilities of existing diagnostics, or doing plasma modelling. An overview of the diagnostics which will be available during these experimental phases will be given and the boundary conditions all diagnostics have to cope with in a device like Wendelstein 7-X will be presented. Some idea of the general geometries and the access port situations, as well as of specific projects possibly suited for collaborations will be given.
