Mechanical behaviour of irradiated tungsten for fusion power

Abstract:

Tungsten will be a key material for the plasma-facing components in future fusion devices. Its mechanical performance under neutron irradiation will strongly influence the lifetime of these devices. Pure tungsten has been subjected to a variety of irradiating species - tungsten ions, helium ions and fission neutrons - between 500°C and 900°C and the change in mechanical properties measured by micro-mechanical testing methods.

Pure tungsten has been ion-irradiated using self-ions and...
