EUROfusion’s ITER Physics programme is designed to coordinate experiments to gather as much physics knowledge as possible to ensure the efficient experimentation in ITER once it begins operations. Within the main research topics tackled under the ITER Physics programme is also work program Plasma Facing Components, that focuses on understanding of processes of material interaction with plasma and development of neutron resistant materials.
