We are really glad to support the radiation protection group at MITICA (Megavolt ITER Injector & Concept Advancement) with ELSE NUCLEAR area monitoring instruments.
MITICA is the prototype of the 1 MV ITER injector, operated by the RFX Consortium in Padova, Italy.
Neutral particle injection is a critical external heating system for ITER. Due to its extreme complexity, it requires an extensive R&D program to develop and test the system that will have to bring the plasma of the future fusion reactor to a temperature of 150 million degrees.
The injection system works similarly to the jet of steam produced by a cappuccino machine, which, penetrating into the milk, heats it.
