ITER

ITER is a joint international research and development project that aims to demonstrate the scientific and technical feasibility of fusion power. The partners in the project - the ITER Parties - are the European Union (represented by EURATOM), Japan, the People's Republic of China, India, the Republic of Korea, the Russian Federation and the U.S. ITER will be constructed in Europe, at Cadarache in the South of France.
UW-FTI personnel have been involved in the ITER project since its inception in the late 1980s. Our numerous publications reflect our active involvement as we led the U.S. shielding activity for ITER. With the U.S. rejoining ITER, we resumed our leading role in the nuclear area, offering a novel approach for the 3-D modeling of ITER and its subsystems using the CAD/MCNPX interface.
