Developing new materials for the fusion reactor

Success in developing vanadium alloys strong at high temperatures

11-Dec-2018

In the future fusion reactor, plasma is confined by using the magnetic field inside the doughnut-shaped vacuum vessel. The blanket is in a location where it almost touches the plasma, and as if to enfold the plasma the blanket is placed on the inner surface of the vacuum chamber. The blanket, by ...
