The world’s largest fusion reactor is being installed in southern France. The goal is to create the possibility of construction of commercial power plants based on controlled nuclear fusion technology by imitating the reactions that power our Sun. However, high temperature and tremendous energy flux on the surface of the reactor bring about the erosion of the wall material. The objective of this project is the characterization of the fusion reactor’s walls. The data on the composition of the cause and the concentration of elements up to the millionth part can be produced using spectroscopic analysis of plasma-emitted light.

The partners in this project are the Faculty of Physical Chemistry of the University of Belgrade, Vinča Institute of Nuclear Sciences of the University of Belgrade and the Faculty of Engineering of the University of Kragujevac.
