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…

17th International Conference on Plasma-Facing Materials and Components for Fusion Applications (PFMC-17), Eindhoven, The Netherlands, 20-24 May 2019

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…

17th International Conference on Plasma-Facing Materials and Components for Fusion Applications (PFMC-17), Eindhoven, The Netherlands, 20-24 May 2019

JET has now completed three operating periods, ILW1, ILW2 and ILW3, giving an opportunity to make comparisons between tiles exposed for single operating periods and also comparisons of tiles exposed for all three periods, ILW1-3 (2011-2016). In this contribution, a comprehensive overview of fuel retention and material erosion/deposition patterns…
