Plasma-wall interaction

The objectives of this facility are the following:

The study of the behaviour of materials relevant to ITER and DEMO at high particle fluxes of different species (H, D, He).

The study of the behaviour of materials relevant to ITER and DEMO at high energy fluxes and at different temperatures.

The study of the behaviour of materials relevant to ITER and DEMO at high particle fluxes from the plasma, with simultaneous high thermal loads.

The effect of local magnetic fields and plasma pressure on the movement of liquid layers or gas clouds created by the plasma.

The effect of sample orientation with respect to the plasma for the cited phenomena.

The study of material mixing and its effect on the plasma-material interaction.

The characterization and modelling of the effect of plasma irradiation of structural materials, shields, joints, welds, etc.

The characterization and modelling of plasma-wall interactions for different kind of materials.

The characterization and modelling of plasma irradiation on insulating materials and diagnostic components.
