Nuclear fusion is the process that heats the stars by the collision of atomic nuclei which fuse together to form heavier elements and release energy. The generation of energy using this process has several advantages: no carbon emissions, abundant fuel supplies, efficiency, reliability and operationally safe. One way to achieve the necessary con…

30th Symposium on Fusion Technology (SOFT), Giardini Naxos, Messina, Sicily, 16-21 September 2018

In 1998 Makhankov [1] described the concept of modular exchangeable plasma facing components (PFCs) based on liquid metal heat pipes which are radiatively cooled. Here we present results from recent experiments with a lithium filled tubular heat pipe owned by Sandia National Laboratories. The tantalum envelope (~20mm diameter by ~200mm long) was…
