Thesis

Electron microscopy and multi-scale modelling of radiation damage recovery in tungsten

Abstract:

The thesis is concerned with understanding the recovery mechanisms of radiation damage in tungsten. Tungsten is a key material in next-generation fusion reactors such as ITER, which will be exposed to intense neutron radiation, plasma and high temperatures, and its durability will determine the reactor’s competitiveness versus other energy sources.

The thesis makes a comprehensive, quantitative study of recovery and its depen- dence on temperature, time, and material purity. It empl...
