19th International Conference on Plasma-Facing Materials and Components for Fusion Applications

22 to 26 May 2023

LVR Landemuseum Bonn

 

 

 

 

 

The performance of fusion devices and of future fusion power plants strongly depends on the capability and durability of plasma-facing materials and components under the expected operational conditions. This comprises the resistance to heat and particle loads, material and in particular thermo-mechanical properties, as well as the variation of those as a result of fusion neutron irradiation. These are all critical parameters, which need to be understood and tailored from atomistic to component levels. The 19th International Conference on Plasma-Facing Materials and Components for Fusion Applications addresses these issues.



Among the topics of the conference, recent developments and research results in the following fields are addressed:

  • Tungsten, tungsten alloys, and advanced steels
  • Low-Z and liquid materials
  • Erosion, re-deposition, mixing, and dust formation
  • Fuel retention and removal
  • Materials under extreme thermal and particle loads
  • Technology and qualification of plasma-facing components
  • Neutron effects in plasma-facing materials
  • Fusion devices and edge plasma physics

 

Selected international speakers will present overview lectures and treat detailed aspects of the given topics. Contributed papers to the subjects of the meeting are solicited for oral and poster presentations.
