Disruption Mitigation

US Contribution:

The US is responsible for R&D, design, and fabrication of the disruption mitigation system (up to a capped value). The system has two functions: 1) limiting the impacts of plasma current disruptions to the tokamak vacuum vessel, first wall blankets and other in-vessel components, and 2) suppressing the formation and deleterious effects of high energy runaway electrons.
