EXOTIC, AN EXPERIMENTAL PROGRAMME ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF CERAMIC BREEDING MATERIALS
An experimental programme, EXOTIC, has been initiated by SNL - Springfields, SCK/CEN - Mol and ECN - Petten to manufacture and characterize the Li compounds Li-20, Li-2Ti0-3, Li-2Zr0-3 and Li-8Zr0-6 and to a lesser extent also LiA10-2 and Li-2Si0-3. After complete characterization and measurement of some important physical, chemical and mechanical properties samples of these Li compounds will, in cooperation with the Joint Research Centre JRC Petten, be irradiated in the HFR Petten to investigate in particular the tritium release characteristics. This will be done by in-situ tritium extraction. After irradiation the samples will be subjected to detailed post-irradiation testing. All activities are integrated in the European Fusion Technology Programme. The results should contribute among other things to the selection and specification of the material for the NET/INTOR blanket.
