Since the last decade, a variety of compact spherical loads, thought for different kinds of applications, are designed and constructed at IFP. Between 2014 and 2016 a prototype half load for the European ITER gyrotron has been successfully tested with long pulses and equivalent power up to ~1.8 MW at the National Institutes for Quantum and Radiological Science and Technology (QST, http://www.fusion.qst.go.jp/english/index.html) in Naka (Japan). After these experiments, a collaboration started between IFP, QST and the Italian company LT-Calcoli, to realise and construct a load specifically designed for conditioning the Japanese 1 MW/CW ITER gyrotron, whose testbed is located at QST.
