Summary: Fusion Engineering and Design 72 (2004) 12
Preface
This special issue is devoted to articles summarizing
research results from the APEX Study. APEX was ini-
tiated in 1998 as part of the US Fusion Energy Sciences
Program initiative to encourage innovation and scien-
tific understanding. The primary objective of APEX
was to identify and explore novel, possibly revolution-
ary, concepts for the plasma chamber technology that
could substantially improve the attractiveness of fusion
energy systems. A particular focus was to provide the
capability to extract heat at high neutron and surface
heat loads. The chamber technology includes the com-
ponents in the immediate exterior of the plasma (i.e.
first wall, blanket, divertor, and vacuum vessel) and
has a tremendous impact on the economic, safety and
environmental attractiveness of fusion energy systems.
The underlying strategy of the study was to improve
the fundamental understanding and advance the under-
lying engineering sciences, integrate the physics and
