The divertor target plates are the most exposed in-vessel components to high heat flux loads in a fusion reactor due to a combination of plasma bombardment, radiation and nuclear heating. Reliable exhaust systems of such a huge thermal power required a robust and durable divertor target with a sufficiently large heat removal capability and lifetime…


A comprehensive, standardised approach to high heat flux testing of materials is proposed, which allows for standardised data capture and comparison of measurements across global testing sites and setups. A meta-analysis of data for tungsten, with data re-captured in that format, highlights interesting trends with respect to appropriate damage metr…
