A survey of the correlation between temperature and density gradient lengths ( and ) has been performed for the near SOL regions in the ASDEX Upgrade tokamak. In common with previous studies, the near SOL temperature and density gradient length ratio, , is found to be close to unity across a wide range of plasmas. However, it is found that it is po…

The optimum conditions for access to and sustainment of H-mode plasmas and their expected plasma parameters in the Pre-Fusion Power Operation 1 (PFPO-1) phase of the ITER Research Plan, where the additional plasma heating will be provided by 20 MW of Electron Cyclotron Heating (ECH), are assessed in order to identify key open R&D issues. The as…

The optimum conditions for access and sustainment of H-mode plasmas and their expected plasma parameters in the Pre-Fusion Operation 1 (PFPO-1) phase of the ITER Research Plan, where the additional plasma heating will be provided by 20 MW of Electron Cyclotron Heating (ECH), are assessed. The assessment is performed on the basis of empirical and ph…

Only limited data exist on the effect of neutron irradiation on the brittle to ductile transition (BDT) in tungsten. This work investigates the increase in brittle to ductile transition temperature (BDTT) following neutron irradiation to 1.67 displacements per atom, using four-point bend tests over a range of temperatures (623 – 1173 K) and strai…

A novel W-based refractory high entropy alloy with outstanding radiation resistance has been developed. The alloy was grown as thin films showing a bimodal grain size distribution in the nanocrystalline and ultrafine regimes and a unique 4 nm lamella-like structure revealed by atom probe tomography (APT). Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and …
