Novel materials enable more optimized solutions for almost any part of a fusion reactor.

The most critical of these are plasma-facing components which are subject to extreme heating and particle bombardment during the reactor operations. In addition, there are numerous other applications where FinnFusion is now looking for solutions: superconductors, insulators, and radiation-tolerant structural materials. In many of the areas, additive manufacturing methods are pursued. Here you find information about the technological solutions.
