In 2008 the experimental JET nuclear fusion reactor at Culham will change the plasma facing materials inside the tokamak to simulate those intended for use in the new 500MW pilot scale fusion reactor ITER which will be built in France over the next 10 years. ATL has been involved in supplying a number of tungsten and rhenium coated carbon composite panels as test materials for this application.  ATL has also supplied tungsten coatings for other nuclear fusion test components within the ExtreMat project (Link) and other applications (Link).
