Understanding the effects of ion and neutron irradiation on tungsten

Abstract:

Tungsten will be an important material inside future fusion reactors. However, replicating the neutron irradiation that it will be exposed to in that environment is currently impractical. As a result ion irradiation is being used to extend the dose and temperature range. Irradiation hardening data from past experiments show a discrepancy between the results of these two irradiation species. This work involves the first direct comparison between ion irradiation and neutron irradiation of tungs...
