Layered and doped materials for plasma-facing components
The performance of tokamaks under normal operating conditions has indicated problems associated with the use of graphite and a-C:H films produced in-situ by carbonisation. Boron and beryllium have been introduced in attempts to overcome these problems. When not all plasma-facing parts of a fusion device are made out of solid tiles of bricks of the same material, components are layered; the plasma then takes care of the distribution of different materials by erosion and redeposition. This special edition on carbon materials contains extended abstracts or full texts of new work presented at the workshop.
