EUROSEA 001 can be coupled with a suitable material assembly presenting: a moderating region ( moderator ) in heavy water for slowing down fast neutrons avoiding neutron captures; an irradiation region ( inside the moderator ); an outer reflecting region ( reflector ) in Graphite or Teflon for limiting neutron leakage and increasing thermal neutron flux inside the moderator EUROSEA 001 + material assembly for thermal neutron flux production

EUROSEA 001: Further development and Upgrade As presented by Prof. Leung, further improvements are expected: at least an order of magnitude for neutron output; EUROSEA Committee is managing the upgrade of EUROSEA 001 thanks to the collaboration of its partners; At present new plasma chamber body design and target and moderator studies are under development; Dimensions and costs of the upgrade version do not differ from EUROSEA 001 ones
