Article Preview

Nuclear fusion is a promising source of environmental friendly energy for the future, and the ultra-fine grained Tungsten (W) is a hopeful candidate material to be used as plasma-facing materials (PFMs), which are the key materials in the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER), for its many useful advantages. While, due to its high melting point and high sintering temperature needed, the ultra-fine grain sized tungsten is not easy to be fabricated. In this paper, the method of explosive consolidation of powders as well as its mechanism and improvements are discussed, and finally the possibility of using this method to preparing of ultra-fine grained W plasma facing material are also introduced.
