Powder based processing of novel dispersion strengthened copper alloys for fusion applications

Abstract:

Copper (Cu) has high thermal conductivity and is thus ideal for high heat flux, thermal heat sink applications in fusion power applications. Divertor designs for future fusion power plants will expose Cu alloys to extreme thermal (>10 MW m−2) and neutron fluxes (200 dpa) that destabilise the microstructure of Cu. To improve stability, strength and creep resistance, alloying additions are used commercially, but these compromise thermal conductivity. Dispersed oxide particles m...
