To establish that the components and assemblies of the Hard X-Ray Monitor, the design of which was a GEMS contribution to the system development, are structurally sound, GEMS has manufactured all major components of the diagnostic system for testing purposes. These tests included subjecting these components to ITER’s harsh environment through a series of thermal cycling, vibration, and assembly trials. In addition to the in-vessel and interspace parts, GEMS has also manufactured a mock-up shielding box for the Photomultiplier Tubes of the system, which are located in the port cell and shall defend the sensitive I&C components against stray light and electromagnetic fields.
GEMS Engineering is deeply involved in and fully devoted to the success of the ITER project. As a result, our main reference works are in connection with ITER, and - more closely - to its diagnostic systems.
The ITER device, currently under construction in the south of France, will study the potential of controlled nuclear fusion to provide energy for mankind. In order to study the behaviour of this device, a set of monitoring systems (referred to as Diagnostics) is required. These Diagnostics will provide the information required to understand the performance of the device.
