Fusion reactors: extreme materials, intense plasma wall interaction

Course

Description

Imagine a fusion reactor: A hydrogen plasma, magnetically confined at 150 Million C that generates several GW of power. And imagine the harsh conditions in the reactor: erosion of surfaces due to plasma wall interaction, neutron damage, activation…. And the extreme material challenges in the design of the superconducting high-field magnets. Extreme conditions, extreme materials, extreme challenges – extremely interesting.
