The conditioning of the inner wall surfaces in fusion devices by in situ plasma chemical deposition of thin films of carbon (carbonisation) or a boron/carbon mixture (boronisation) has significantly improved the plasma performance. This is achieved by suppression of the metal liberation from the in-vessel components, by the reduction of hydrocarbon formation on carbonaceous surfaces, and by the control of oxygen plasma impurities via gettering processes.
