A conceptual design of Advanced Fusion Neutron Source, A-FNS, has been conducted to achieve early realization of fusion-like neutron irradiation test for fusion reactor materials in Japan. A-FNS provides eight test modules to obtain irradiation data for fusion reactor materials. Conceptual design activities on Blanket Functional Materials Test Module (BFMTM), Tritium Release Test Module (TRTM) and Activated Corrosion Products Module (ACPM) were described among the A-FNS test modules. Also, basic concepts of the sub-system cells for the TRTM and the ACPM were also discussed.
