An integrated model for materials in a fusion power plant: transmutation, gas production, and helium embrittlement under neutron irradiation
The high-energy, high-intensity neutron fluxes produced by the fusion plasma will have a significant life-limiting impact on reactor components in both experimental and commercial fusion devices. AsExpand

Neutron-induced transmutation effects in W and W-alloys in a fusion environment
W and W-alloys are among the primary candidate materials for plasma-facing components in the design of fusion reactors, particularly in high-heat-flux regions such as the divertor. Under neutronExpand

Modelling the interaction of primary irradiation damage and precipitates: Implications for experimental irradiation of zirconium alloys
Abstract Damage to materials by different irradiating particles is typically calibrated using displacements per atom (dpa). However dpa calculations usually neglect additional damage produced fromExpand

PKA distributions: Contributions from transmutation products and from radioactive decay
Abstract The neutrons generated in fusion plasmas interact with materials via nuclear reactions. The resulting transmutations and atomic displacements have life-limiting consequences for fusionExpand
