IRradiation Effects on HTS for Fusion

12 – 16 November 2023, Arona, Italy

Announcement page



The goal of the workshop is to create a strong network of researchers that unites the competences coming from the nuclear fusion community with those from scholars who worked on the high temperature superconductors (HTS). In our view this is a crucial step to tackle the several challenges related to the effects of particle radiation on the HTS tapes that are enabling the development of compact fusion reactors.
