UKAEA-CCFE-PR(21)26

The first divertor was installed in the JET machine between 1992 and 1994 and was operated with carbon tiles and then beryllium tiles in 1994-5. Post-mortem studies after these first experiments demonstrated that most of the impurities deposited in the divertor originate in the main chamber, and that asymmetric deposition patterns generally favouri…

Small Angle Neutron Scattering (SANS) is performed to analyse the microstructural state of reference CuCrZr material with carefully controlled heat treatments, small-scale manufacturing mock-ups of assemblies and high-heat-flux exposed mock-ups. The information derived from the SANS data corresponds well to existing literature data based on microsc…

When spin polarised electrons flow through a magnetic texture a transfer torque is generated. We examine the effect of this torque on skyrmions and skyrmion bags, skyrmio…

The effect of ion irradiation on evolution of microstructure and hardening of beryllium with different impurity levels was investigated using TEM and nanoindentation. High purity S-65 grade and less-pure S-200-F grade were implanted by helium ions at temperatures of 50°C and 200°C. 11 different energies were used, so as to create a quasi-homog…

The ability of a body-centered cubic metal to deform plastically is limited by the thermally activated glide motion of screw dislocations, which are line defects with a mobility exhibiting complex dependence on temperature, stress, and dislocation segment length. We derive an analytical expression for the velocity of dislocation glide, based on a s…

Using ab initio density function theory calculations, we have determined the structure of self-interstitial atom (SIA) defects in the most commonly occurring face-centred cubic (FCC) metals. The most stable SIA defects in Al, Ca, Ni, Cu, Pd and Ag are the {100} dumbbells whereas octahedral SIA configurations have the lowest energy in Pt, R…

The divertor component is subject to some of the most extreme loading conditions in a fusion environment and the safety design window is relatively narrow. Variation in mechanical properties of the same material throughout a component is common place in practice and can be caused by both local effects of processing and joining, and local variations…

Validation and verification (V&V) benchmark exercises form an important part of the development and release of the FISPACT-II inventory code and its associated input nuclear data libraries. This paper describes the latest V&V based on the fusion decay heat measurements performed at the Japanese FNS facility. New and novel assessment techni…

Understanding of fuel retention and release processes from plasma facing components (PFCs) of ITER like wall materials is important from fundamental and technological aspects [1]. Detailed information about fuel retention and release characteristics in plasma facing components from JET will allow…

In this paper we investigate the residual deformation field in the vicinity of nano-scratch experiments generated using two tip geometries in a (100) Cu single crystal. We compare the deformation with that from indentation, in an attempt to understand the mechanisms of deformation in tangential sliding. The lattice rotation fields are mapped exp…
