This paper reports the first deuterium-tritium (D-T) fusion experiments in the geometry of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER) with long pulse length and an ITER-like divertor. Physics aspects, such as the isotope dependence of confinement, the H-mode threshold, shear optimization, heating methods, high fusion performance and alpha particle heating, are discussed together with their implications. The technology aspects of tritium wall loading and clean-up, the close coupled tritium plant and the future remote handling divertor target exchange are also mentioned.
