During the year 2011, the SCK•CEN has concentrated his activities on the four main poles defined in the former years, i.e.:
the studies of the first wall of future DEMO facility and plasma wall interactions, using the recently refurbished plasmatron VISIONI, and through the collaboration within the Trilateral Euregio Cluster (TEC) agreement;
the study of the radiation resistance of optical and specific diagnostic components and the development and prototyping of a Fiber Optics Current Sensor (FOCS) for measuring Tokamak plasma current for long plasma pulses and without embarked electronics:
the further study, by irradiation and mechanical testing but also by modelling, of the future structural material for a fusion plant, the RAFM Eurofer and the development and characterization of ODS-Eurofer;
specific fusion socio-economic studies on fusion, focused on an integrated sustainability assessment study, based on a reflection group meeting held in 2011.
