Abstract
Nuclear fusion energy can become within the next two decades a real alternative to fossil fuels. However, the lack of materials able to withstand the severe radiation conditions (high thermal loads and atomistic damage) expected in such reactors is a bottle neck for fusion to become a reality. ? Nowadays, W has been proposed to be one of the best candidates for Plasma Facing Material (PFM) for both laser and magnetic confinement fusion approaches. However, works carried out up to now have identified some limitations for W which have to be defeated in order to fulfill specifications. Currently, the capabilities of nanostructured materials for nuclear fusion reactor applications are being investigated. ? We report on the optimization of the HIPIMS parameters for deposition of nanoestrcutured tungsten coatings with a thickness in the micro-meter range and on the influence of HIPIMS parameters (cathode voltage and pulse frequency) on the W coatings morphology, stress state and mechanical properties.
