Romanian labs develop wall coating for ITER

Romanian scientists have developed a new technology for reinforcing the wall of a fusion reactor to resist hot plasma. This marks an important step forward for the success of ITER, the world's biggest experimental fusion reactor. The "combined magneton sputtering and ion implantation" technology (CMSII)—developed by the Romanian Fusion Association (Euratom/MEdC) which is a member of the Euratom Fusion Research Program—has been chosen as the best "coating technique" in terms of resistance to high heat loads.
