Fusion reactors: extreme materials, intense plasma wall interaction



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 and the tritium breeding blanket. Extreme conditions, extreme materials, extreme challenges – extremely interesting.
