UKAEA-CCFE-PR(18)79

This paper reports new activities conducted as part of the JET technology programme under the WP-JET3 ACT sub-project collaboration. The aim of the sub-project is to take advantage of the significant 14 MeV neutron fluence expected during JET operations to irradiate samples of materials that will used in the manufacturing of main ITER tokamak compo…

This paper details progress in experimental characterisation work at JET for the long-term irradiation station conducted as part of a project to perform activation experiments using ITER materials. The aim is to take advantage of the significant 14 MeV neutron yield expected during JET operations to irradiate samples of materials that will be used …

JET components are removed periodically for surface analysis to assess material migration and fuel retention. This paper describes issues related to handling JET components and procedures for preparing samples for analysis; in particular a newly developed procedure for cutting beryllium tiles is presented. Consideration is also given to the hazards…

After the first high power D-T experiment in JET in 1997 (DTE1), when JET was equipped with Carbon PFC’s, a proposed second high power (up to ~40MW) D-T campaign (DTE2) in the current Be/W vessel will address essential operational, technical, diagnostics and scientific issues in support of ITER. These experiments are proposed to minimize the risk…

The current status of nuclear data evaluations for fusion technologies is reviewed. Well-qualified data are available for neutronics and activation calculations of fusion power reactors and the next-step device ITER, the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor. Major challenges for the further development of fusion nuclear data arise from …
