What is the DEMO R&D Activity?
In parallel to the DEMO Design activities, materials and technologies have to be developed, tested and qualified to be used in future fusion reactors. A first step is to find materials sufficiently reliable to build DEMO, and to develop the technologies that will not be fully tested in ITER, such as Tritium fuel production and recovery. Under BA DEMO R&D activities, JA and EU share the results of the DEMO R&D in materials and technologies, agree on complementary experiments, cross-check each other’s results, and build common databases and engineering handbooks for the future construction of DEMO and fusion reactors
