1. INTRODUCTION
Developing a vision for an economically competitive
fusion energy system remains the grand challenge for fusion
researchers. Meeting this challenge requires advances in
plasma physics and in fusion technology, a key element
of which is Fusion Power Technology (FPT), also called
Fusion Nuclear Technology (FNT). FPT is concerned with
all reactor components in the immediate exterior of the
plasma, commonly called "in-vessel systems", which include
first wall, divertor, blanket, and the vacuum boundary as
