Research into making nuclear fusion a source of large-scale grid power is gathering pace, with the ITER tokomak under construction in France. One of the main issues with a fusion power plant will be the development of materials capable of withstanding unprecedentedly high fast neutron fluxes and heat loads, while keeping radioactive waste to a minimum. The talk will outline the problems, current ideas for solutions, and current research into structural materials for fusion power plants.
