ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) is the world’s largest and most influential international scientific research project of exploiting and utilizing nuclear fusion energy, with the aim to verify the scientific and technical feasibility in the peaceful use of fusion energy. A Tritium Breeding Blanket (BB) ensuring tritium breeding self-sufficiency is a compulsory component for demonstration power reactor (DEMO), the next-step after ITER, although is not present in ITER. Mock-ups of DEMO BB, called Test Blanket Modules (TBMs), will be inserted and tested in ITER directly facing the plasma. They are the principal means by which ITER will provide the first experimental data on the performance of the BBs that is still an open issue on the path to commercial fusion power.
