Abstract

The KfK Association has continued work on 17 R & D contracts of the Fusion Technology Programme covering all areas defined in the Fusion Technology Programme. The dominant part of the work is directed towards the need of the NET design or supporting experiments. Some additional effort addresses long-term technological issues and system studies relevant to DEMO or confinement schemes alternative to Tokamaks. Progress has been achieved for superconducting magnets, by terminating the LCT pretest in the TOSKA facility. For ceramic materials a consistent complementary programme has now been established in collaboration with the involved associations. Besides the ceramic breeder blanket, a new concept of a liquid metal blanket has been studied. The development of ceramic breeder materials was extended to include silicate materials in glass form and sintered material with compounds of higher lithium content. Concerning tritium release from solid breeder materials efforts have been initiated to determine solubility and diffusion properties of irradiated and unirradiated samples. Relations to international fusion technology laboratories have been maintained and extended. Nuclear testing was discussed in a workshop, hosted at KfK in May 1984.
