Research Topics

Topics which are investigated in the frame of the plasma-wall interaction project

  • Tungsten as first-wall material: Erosion behaviour, optimisation and hydrogen retention
  • Improvement of the material properties of tungsten
  • Steel as an alternative material for the first wall
  • Transport of eroded species and formation of mixed materials: experiment and modelling
  • Influence of eroded material on the plasma properties
  • Qualification and analysis of components for the divertor
  • Computer modelling of plasma-wall interaction and extrapolation to future fusion devices
