14th International Conference on PFMC

International Conference on Plasma-Facing Materials and Components for Fusion Applications

begin
13.May.2013
end
17.May.2013
venue
Lecture Theatre, Forschungszentrum Jülich

The performance of fusion devices and of a future fusion power plant critically depends on the plasma facing materials and components. Resistance to local heat and particle loads, thermo-mechanical 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 14th International Conference on Plasma-Facing Materials and Components for Fusion Applications addresses these issues.

Among the topics of the joint conference recent developments and research results in the following fields are addressed:

  • Tungsten and tungsten alloys
  • Low-Z materials
  • Mixed materials
  • Erosion, redeposition & fuel retention
  • Materials under extreme thermal loads
  • Technology and testing of plasma-facing components
  • Neutron effects in plasma-facing materials
  • Advanced characterization of materials and components

Selected international speakers will present overview lectures and treat detailed aspects of the given topics. Contributed papers to the subjects of the meeting are solicited for oral and poster presentations.


The official language of the conference is English. Please note that this conference is not a public event and is designed for an expert audience.

If you are interested in the conference please contact Mrs Beate Schmitz (pfmc-14@fz-juelich.de) for further information.
