Paper Title:
Material Processing and Testing of Plasma-Interactive Components for Fusion Energy Systems
  Abstract

In a global effort, the key players have combined their R&D forces to work jointly on the next generation thermonuclear fusion device. The development of structural, heat-sink and armor materials for plasma interactive components is focusing on neutron irradiation damage, and its impact on property retention and component integrity. Consequently, the processing of materials, realistic component testing methods as well as modeling are being optimized to suit the newest design concept(s). Nondestructive inspection of components is now available at an accuracy needed to ensure long service in a harsh, nuclear environment. The most promising materials and best established manufacturing processes are described; the proposed qualification techniques for fusion in-vessel and heat removal systems are reviewed.
