Als Partner des Projekts Fusion Energy Materials Science-Coordination Action (FEMaS-CA) lädt auch die Forschungs-Neutronenquelle zur ersten FEMaS-Konferenz vom 9. bis 13. Mai in Rosenheim ein. Gleichzeitig findet dort auch der 13. Internationale Workshop on Plasma-Facing Materials and Components for Fusion Applications statt. Eine Anmeldung ist bis zum 15. März möglich.
The performance of fusion devices and of a future fusion power plant critically depends on the materials and components selected for the first wall facing the plasma.
Resistance to local heat and particle loads, thermomechanical properties, as well as the response to neutron damage of the selected materials are critical parameters which need to be understood and tailored from atomistic to component levels.
The 13th International Workshop on Plasma-Facing Materials and Components for Fusion Applications addresses these issues and co-organizes the event together with the 1st International Conference on
Fusion Materials Science, focusing on advanced materials science and characterization.
Among the topics of the joint conference recent developments and research results in the following fields are addressed:
• carbon, beryllium, and tungsten based materials
• mixed materials
• erosion and redeposition
• high heat flux component development
• benchmarking of radiation damage modelling
• synchrotron and neutron based characterization techniques
• application of advanced TEM and micro-/nano mechanical testing
Selected international speakers will present overview lectures and treat detailed aspects of the given topics. Contributed papers to the subjects of the event are solicited for oral and poster presentations.
