Project summary

Tungsten (W) plays a key role in fusion research as it is considered the most suitable material for plasma facing components. One of the difficulties in the utilization of W is its inherent brittleness which is further exacerbated at high temperature due to the inevitable recrystallization. This project will check if recrystallization may at the same time have adverse effects also on the recovery of radiation damage in W.
