IRRADIATION OF FUSION REACTOR CERAMIC MATERIALS
In the frame of the European Fusion reactor materials research programme, (MAT 6/MAT 13), different ceramics are investigated as possible candidate materials for the first wall protection of NET. The experiment is part of a joint programme including CEA Saclay and KfK Karlsruhe. Two other experiments are performed in OSIRIS, Saclay and PHENIX, Marcoule. The damage level required is 10 dpa, which corresponds to a nominal fluence level of 10"26" m"-2", E > 0.1 MeV. The nominal fluence is expected at the vertical peak position in the experiment with a peak to average ratio of about 1.2 over 400 mm of height. The irradiation temperatures are nominally 1200circC, high temperature and 400circC, low temperature. The experiment consists of three sample holders in a trefoil, TRIO, arrangement in one reactor position. Two holders, high temperature, house specimens for MAT 6, and the third one, low temperature, houses specimens for MAT 13.
