EUROfusion’s ITER Physics programme is designed to coordinate experiments to gather as much physics knowledge as possible to ensure the efficient experimentation in ITER once it begins operations. Below are the main research topics tackled under the ITER Physics Programme.
Research on JET is carried out under the following themes: JET Experimental Campaigns, Investigation of Plasma-Facing Components for ITER, Technological Exploitation of Deuterium-Tritium Operation for the ITER preparation, and JET Enhancements.
The divertor is an area of a fusion reactor, where impurities from the reaction are removed. EUROfusion assess if a dedicated divertor tokamak test facility is necessary or if tests on specifically upgraded existing facilities will give sufficient clues to ITER and DEMO divertor requirements.
