Extended retention scalings of D in Be, W, C R. Dörner, SEWG meeting, 9-10.10. 2008

11 V.Philipps, SEWG mixed materials, EU PWI meeting Frascati, Oct 2008 Codeposits formed at higher temperature retain less deuterium/tritium D accumulation from W codeposition is negligible D content of Be and C codepoists can be comparable –D content can be significantly less in Be codeposits formed at lower incident particle energy locations (i.e. divertor and dome) R. Dörner, SEWG meeting, 9-10.10. 2008

12 V.Philipps, SEWG mixed materials, EU PWI meeting Frascati, Oct 2008 Topic: chemical erosion of Be-C mixed system R. Dörner, SEWG meeting, 9-10.10. 2008 Present data: a small beryllium impurity concentration in the plasma drastically suppresses carbon erosion with a characteristic decay time

13 V.Philipps, SEWG mixed materials, EU PWI meeting Frascati, Oct 2008 CD band decay time similar with and without argon R. Dörner, SEWG meeting, 9-10.10. 2008 Addition of Ar to the plasma does not affect the mitigation of carbon chemical erosion by beryllium

14 V.Philipps, SEWG mixed materials, EU PWI meeting Frascati, Oct 2008 Topic: surface modifications of W due to high fluence mixed-species (D, He, Be) plasma interactions with W layers of Be suppresses blister formation (300-700 K ) At 550 K a blistered surface is prevalent after exposure to D 2 plasma. A thin layer of Be as little as a few 10s of nm suppress blister formation and D retention. R. Dörner, SEWG meeting, 9-10.10. 2008

15 V.Philipps, SEWG mixed materials, EU PWI meeting Frascati, Oct 2008 Mixing He with D-plasma suppresses also blisters on W surface and reduces D-retention in W.

17 V.Philipps, SEWG mixed materials, EU PWI meeting Frascati, Oct 2008 Observed t 1/2 proportionality. The thickness of the nano- structured layer, d, agrees well with =(2Kt) 1/2, with, K 1120 K = 6.6 0.4 10 –16 m 2 s –1 K 1320 K = 2.0 0.5 10 –15 m 2 s –1 Overall process is consistent with an activation energy of ~0.7 eV. Nanostructures are observed on various W materials, also doped W materials

18 V.Philipps, SEWG mixed materials, EU PWI meeting Frascati, Oct 2008 In D2He plasmas : nano-morphology persists, growth rate depends on He+ flux. Simultaneous Be deposition but with no development of thick Be layer ( Be re-erosion dominates deposition, nano-morphology development is enhanced A thick Be or C layer inhibits nano-morphology.. Importance for various PWI processes not fully clear but Liner and dome (T below 900 K). – Minimal BeW alloy or He induced nano-morphology – Be and/or He may alleviate also W blistering. at W strike-points (T above 1000 K). – BeW alloy and/or He induced nano- morphology can develop !!
