Editorial

ITER is a vast subject that will take time to explore. Every few months we hope you’ll look forward to receiving news from the frontiers of ITER science and technology, the enterprising world of high-precision industry, and from the hilltop in Provence where it’s all coming together.

This magazine is for you. We’d be happy to receive your suggestions and remarks for its improvement at the email address listed below.

The European tokamak JET, enhanced with an ITER-like wall and divertor, is getting ready to renew experiments with a 50-50 mix of deuterium and tritium.

T-time for JET

In operational tokamaks around the world, plasmas are heated every day to temperatures that reach tens of thousands, or even millions, of degrees Celsius. Run with hydrogen, deuterium or helium these experiments may not generate fusion ener...
José Manuel Barroso, the President of the European Commission,  is convinced that the future of Europe is in science and innovation. On 11 July 2014, he visited ITER to reaffirm Europe's commitment to ITER.

Europe's Barroso: "Proud to have believed in ITER"

In the official photo of the ITER Agreement—signed at the Elysée Palace in Paris on 21 November 2006—he occupies the place of honour at French President Jacques Chirac's right. José Manuel Barroso, whose second term as European Commission p...
The concrete employed at ITER plays a double role—guaranteeing structural integrity as well as nuclear safety. Whether its formulation is ordinary or exceptional, the concrete is the object of control and verification at each stage of its elaboration and implementation.

A concrete for every purpose

Gravel, sand, cement, water and sometimes an additive ... at first glance, concrete seems like a simple material. But not at ITER, where construction follows strict norms and regulations, and every step is verified not once ... but many tim...
The "simplified models" that Lauris Honoré creates from the huge ITER data bank are terrific pedagogical and communication tools, revealing what the installation is really like, in all its beauty and complexity.

A jewel in its concrete box

Deep into the ITER servers lays the huge data bank, constantly updated, that forms the 3D blueprint of the whole installation. Digging into this "detailed model", one can create ultra-precise renditions of any part of the machine,...
