The chapter is devoted to materials used in controlled fusion facilities. Material solutions for magnetic confinement fusion devices and inertial confinement fusion facilities are described. Fusion materials have to preserve their performance often under extremely harsh conditions characterized by intensive particle fluxes, high levels of neutron i…

Management of tritium inventory remains one of the grand challenges in the development of fusion energy, and the choice of plasma-facing materials is a key factor for in-vessel tritium retention. The Atomic and Molecular Data Unit of the International Atomic Energy Agency organized a Coordinated Research Project (CRP) on the overall topic of tritiu…


Tritium accumulating in codeposits in the gaps between plasma facing components is a safety concern in next step fusion machines as suitable removal techniques have yet not been developed. We report on Imaging Plate measurements of the tritium areal distribution on the side surface of graphite/CFC tiles installed in the TFTR bumper limiter and JET …
