Specialists at Russia’s DV Efremov Institute of Electrophysical Apparatus (NIIEFA, part of Rosatom) in St Petersburg have completed acceptance tests of the full-scale prototype panel for the first wall of the vacuum chamber of the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor ITER under construction at Cadarache in France. The last stage was measurement of the geometric parameters of the prototype after the tests.

Specialists at the GI Budker Institute of Nuclear Physics of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences (INP SB RAS) together with teams from other scientific organisations are testing boron carbide as a coating for the walls of the International Experimental Thermonuclear Reactor (ITER) under construction in France. Plasma burning during a thermonuclear reaction occurs at extremely high temperatures which can damage the walls of the reactor. Research is underway to find a substance that can protect against this damage.
