Abstract

Work of KfK in magnetic fusion has concentrated increasingly on first wall and blanket structures and the elements of the tritium extraction and purification system, also studies of remote maintenance and safety. Most of the actual work addresses NET, the NET design team at Garching is directly supported by KfK via delegation of 3 experts and by study contracts. KfK also participates in a number of NET technology contracts, about 80 man/years per year. A particularly narrow cooperation has been established with CEA in blanket design, development of breeding materials and poloidal field coils. As NET takes shape, KfK is preparing itself to contribute increasingly in the areas of blanket engineering, tritium process techniques, magnet systems and safety studies. Furthermore KfK conducts an experimental study on gyrotrons as a source for mm wave heating of reactor relevant plasmas. Preliminary studies have been pursued with IPP Garching on reactor aspects of Stellarators and on the definition of suitable experiments for this development line.
