General information

Course name Lecture: High heat load components in nuclear fusion devices
Semester SS 2024
Current number of participants 1
Home institute Lehrstuhl für Experimentelle Plasmaphysik
Courses type Lecture in category Teaching
Next date Thursday, 06.06.2024 12:15 - 15:30, Room: (2004 HZ Physik)
Participants The course is suitable for both physics and materials science students. Specific knowledge will be explicitly developed during the lecture and is not required as a prerequisite.
Pre-requisites The first part of the course module, "Fundamentals of Plasma-Material Interaction", is helpful but not strictly necessary for following this lecture. In principle both parts of the module "Plasma-Material Interaction" can be taken in arbitrary sequence. The final examination requires knowledge of both parts, however.
Learning organisation Lectures will take place on a weekly basis. Lecture slides (with some copyright-protected material replaced by placeholders with explanatory text) are provided via DigiCampus.
Performance record Oral examination at the end of the semester. Appointments on request.
Online/Digitale Veranstaltung Veranstaltung wird in Präsenz abgehalten.

Module assignments


This is the second part of the course module on Plasma-Wall Interaction. The lecture will first expand on analyis methods for plasma-facing materials, with a particular focus on samples and components that were installed inside fusion experiments as well as high heat flux testing. Based on the knowledge of the various stress factors for such components, possible materials choices are discussed, and advanced materials concepts that specifically address some of the numerous challenges in designing a plasma-facing component for a nuclear fusion reactor are presented. Finally, also structural and peripheral materials and components of a fusion reactor are briefly explored.
