Abstract
The future commercial production of electricity based on thermonuclear fusion requires the expansion of a number of research projects, in addition to ITER, mostly related to the progress of long-term technologies that will be needed for future fusion reactors. For the development of the future fusion technology programme, it is projected to build a relevant set of facilities in Madrid, Spain, providing new tools to the Nuclear Fusion Energy community. Among the priority areas identified in the framework of international fusion research programmes, the proposed centre, TechnoFusión, will focus primarily in the following aspects: advanced production and processing technologies for fusion materials, radiation effects in structural and functional materials using ion and electron accelerators, plasma-wall interaction using a linear plasma device in consonance with a quasi-stationary plasma accelerator, liquid metal technologies, demonstration facilities for remote handling and computer simulation, all being reinforced with the support of a significant set of advanced characterization techniques. This contribution presents a review of the objectives and functional specifications of the different facilities to be included in TechnoFusión, with special emphasis on the description of the R&D devices/equipment proposed for fusion applications. TechnoFusión will provide unique tools for future research programmes helping in the fast track to ITER, DEMO and IFMIF.
