Acquisition of systematic irradiation data are essential for understanding fundamental processes of irradiation effects and for establishment of a reliable database for irradiation effects in fusion reactor materials. It will take several years with expensive several different irradiation rigs in a fission reactor irradiation. There, it will take a long time to carry out the needed iterations between irradiation tests and evaluation and materials development. An irradiation rig was developed to carry out irradiation under multiple temperatures and irradiation fluences. Irradiation tests of fusion reactor materials were successfully carried out using the rig in Japan Materials Testing Reactor.
