Fusion Technology Group

The Fusion Technology Group (FTG) was formed in 1999 when Greece joined the EURATOM Thermonuclear Fusion Project.
FTG is the co-ordinator of the Fusion Technology Program of the National Program of Controlled Thermonuclear Fusion. Fusion research at NCSR "Demokritos" is jointly conducted by a collaborating team of 10 researchers from three Institutes: INRaSTES, Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics (INPP) and Institute of Advanced Materials, Physicochemical Processes, Nanotechnology and Microsystems (IAMPPNM). The relevant research facilities of these Institutes are integrated in the research activities of FTG.
The research expertise and infrastructure of FTG include two parts: Materials at Extreme Environment and Radiation Physics. The Fusion Technology related activities of the group refer to JET Fusion Technology issues, radiation damage of materials induced by fast ions and experimental validation of radiation effects modeling. The expertise and infrastructure of the group are also applied to different research areas such as thermal protection systems for aerospace applications.

  • Competitive Research in Fusion Technology
  • Co-ordinating Demokritos’ participation in the European Fusion Technology Programme
  • Utilization of FTG’s multidisciplinary expertise in new technological and research areas
  • Attracting European and National Funding
  • Establishing common research activities within Demokritos, Greece, Europe and the World
  • Development of new innovative research infrastructure in areas in which FTG and Greece have the competitive advantage
  • Participation in Universities educational activities, training of young professionals and  students
  • Focusing toward Societal Value-Added Research
