SlimCS is the conceptual design of a compact fusion DEMO plant assuming technologies foreseeable in 2020-2030s. For continuity of blanket technology from the Japanese ITER-TBM, the prime option of blanket is water-cooled solid breeder with Li2TiO3 (or Li4SiO4) and Be. A reduced-activation ferritic-martensitic steel (RAFM) and subcritical water are chosen as the structural material and coolant, respectively. The reactor has somewhat complex torus configuration with a sector-wide conducting plate slipped in between the replaceable (front) and permanent (back) blanket. In order to allow flexibility of maintenance in such a complex configuration, sector transport hot cell maintenance scheme is adopted. This paper describes characteristics of SlimCS with a focus on materials selection.
