This paper presents an overview of the structural application of low-activation materials (LAMs) in a demonstration reactor. The results presented cover coolant leak rates, thermophysical properties, compatibility with tritium breeder materials, irradiation effects, and LAM-consistent purity. SiC/SiC materials present characteristics which should be optimised, in order to meet the fusion application challenge.
