Abstract
A common problem when dealing with nuclear materials is the lack of neutron irradiation facilities appropriate for materials characterization and qualification. The ESS-Bilbao neutron source, currently under construction, is conceived as a multipurpose facility. It will offer a fast neutron beam line for materials irradiation. In this work we discuss the viability of ESS-Bilbao for experimental studies on fusion materials. Making use of the already designed target station we have calculated the neutron spectrum expected in the fast neutron line. Then the damage (DPA), gas production and PKA (Primary Knock-on Atom) spectra are calculated. Finally ESSBilbao is compared with fusion facilities (HiPER, Demo) and other neutron sources (IFMIF, HFR, ESS).
