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…

Eurofer97 steel is a primary structural material for the plasma facing-components of future fusion reactors. Laser welding is a promising technique that can overcome the challenges of remote handling and maintenance. However, the interaction of the induced residual stress distribution with the heterogeneous microstructure may degrade the mechanical…
