The Divertor Tokamak Test Facility (DTT) is a new tokamak whose
construction has recently been approved by the Italian government. DTT
will be a high field superconducting toroidal device (6 T) carrying
plasma current up to 6 MA in pulses with length up to 100s, with an
up-down symmetrical D-shape defined by major radius R=2.10 m, minor
radius a=0.65 m and average triangularity 0.3. The main role of DTT is
to contribute to the development of a reliable solution for the power
and particle exhaust in a reactor, a challenge commonly recognised as
one of the major issues in the road map towards the realisation of a
nuclear fusion power plant. Following the project approval, since June
2017 the design review of DTT has started. This paper will present the
device by summarizing its main physics goals and the present status of
the design.
