Short description

UKAEA requires a design solution that will largely involve the assembly and integration of commercial solutions for each of the required elements. Subsequently, we envisage creating a prototype technology demonstrator to test and validate the capabilities and prove that the system (suitably scaled) can provide the necessary quality and throughput of isotopically tailored material to satisfy the needs of SPR and future commercial fusion.
