  1. a: Plasma Facing Components

    Release Date: 07-29-2011Open Date: 08-02-2011Due Date: 09-17-2011Close Date: 09-17-2011

    The plasma facing components (PFCs) in energy producing fusion devices will experience 5-15 MW/m2 surface heat flux under normal operation (steadystate)and off-normal energy deposition up to 1 MJ/m2 within 0.1 to 1.0 ms. Refractory solid surfaces represent one type of PFC option. These PFCs are envisioned to have a refractory metal heat sink, cooled by helium gas, and a plasma facing surface, cons ...
