18th International Conference on Plasma-Facing Materials and Components for Fusion Applications, 17th - 21st May 2021

This contribution outlines a strategy for assessing tritium (T) inventory in plasma facing components (PFC) during JET T operations. It is based on retention as a fraction of fuel injected in-vessel, currently reported as 0.24% for 2011-2012 operating period, in conjunction with the planned T pulse schedule providing fueling of 4 g T injected per d…

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…

Post mortem analysis shows that mid and high atomic number metallic impurities are present in deposits on JET plasma facing components with the highest amount of Ni and W, and therefore the largest sink, being found at the top of the inner divertor. Sources are defined as “continuous” or “specific”, in that “continuous” sources…

The European DEMO design will potentially use single phase water cooling in various components that require protection against corrosion damage. Coolant conditions will be similar to fission PWRs but with additional considerations arising from the materials of choice (Eurofer, CuCrZr), 14 MeV neutron irradiation, the presence of tritium, and strong…
