Our research is focused mostly in the following four domains: · R&D on structural and first wall materials for fusion, targeting the role of high flux irradiation on physical and mechanical property changes; · the plasma-wall interaction studies, mostly oriented towards the materials for Plasma F acing Components (PFC) of divertor and the Tritium fuel retention aspects; · the diagnostics, focusing on optical based systems and addressing the problem of radiation resistance of materials, components and systems; · and finally the waste management and recycling, by using the return of experience from our developments and studies carried out for fission power.
