The DEMO design studies in the BA (broader approach in the field of fusion energy) are being conducted by the DEMO Design Activity unit of International Fusion Energy Research Centre for the broader approach (BA) and the Home Teams in EU and Japan since 2011. The activity covers most of the critical issues on the DEMO design. Emphasis during the last two years was on studies to develop the best embodiment of a tokamak as a power reactor consistent with credible operating scenarios and feasible engineering solutions to critical design issues. The technical activities have focused on, for example, plasma physics for DEMO plants, divertor physics and technology, in-vessel components, maintenance schemes and safety research.
