4.2.2019: The Influence of Radiation, Mechanical, and Plasma-Induced Damage on Deuterium Retention in Tungsten
The role of specific defects on deuterium retention in tungsten was clarified in dedicated laboratory experiments. Such information is important because hydrogen isotopes are retained in tungsten only by bonding to lattice defects and this finally determines tritium retention in plasma-facing components in fusion reactors.
