Prediction of material performance in fusion reactor environments relies on computational modelling, and will continue to do so until the first generation of fusion power plants come on line and allow long-term behaviour to be observed. In the meantime, the mode…


During an accident with loss-of-coolant and air ingress in DEMO, the temperature of tungsten first wall cladding may exceed 1000oC and remain for months leading to tungsten oxidation. The radioactive tungsten oxide can be mobilized to the environment at rates of 10 – 150 kg per hour. Smart tungsten-based alloys are under develop…

A status report is given on recent joint activities on the ITER CXRS and BES diagnostic package. Expected measurement performances are reviewed as well as comprehensive discussions are led on an integral approach to the implementation of Core and Edge CXRS observation periscopes. The “first mirror” location, its operational temperature, mainten…
