ITER plasma can be subject to very strong instabilities, called disruptions, which could damage the tokamak. Researchers at IRIG have entirely designed and built TYFANIES, a full-scale test bench able to produce and accelerate cryogenic pellets at 1 km/s to fragment them in the plasma and mitigate the effects of disruptions. These centimeter-sized cryogenic pellets are produced in an "in situ condensation" cell cooled by liquid helium, a technological "innovation" of these researchers.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
