Lineares Plasma in der PSI-2

Plasma-Wall Interaction in Linear Plasma Devices

The interaction between the plasma and the wall materials in a fusion reactor is a key factor determining the lifetime of the wall components and thus the overall cost-effectiveness of the facility.

Wärmeflusstest von Erste-Wand-Komponenten

Plasma-facing Materials

The "first wall" is the name given to the surface of the inner wall of a fusion reactor. This wall is in direct contact with the plasmy and is thus directly affected by the plasma and its constituents.
