Atomic scale characterisation of radiation damage and radiation induced precipitation in tungsten rhenium alloys

Abstract:

Tungsten is considered the prime candidate material for plasma facing components within fusion reactors. However, exposure of tungsten to neutron flux brings about transmutation of tungsten into by-products: Re, Os and Ta. Under increasing levels of radiation damage, irradiation induced clustering/precipitation takes place that embrittles and thus reduces lifetime of such tungsten components. This thesis was undertaken to explore this subject on a deeper level.

There are three compo...
