Abstract [en]

High heat flux tests with central heat flux of 10.5 MW/m(2) using helium neutral beams have been carried out on rolled tungsten. The energy of helium particles is 33 keV and the particle flux is 2 x 10(21) m(-2) s(-1). An 80 x 65 x 3 mm(3) rolled tungsten plate is firstly exposed to a 4.6 s pulse resulting in partially molten surfaces. Thereafter the tungsten plate is irradiated by several helium pulses with fluences of 1.2-2.5 x 10(22)/m(2) and peak temperatures from 1450 to 2590 degrees C. The experiments show that: (1) helium-induced surface modification of the resolidified tungsten surface is very different from that of the non-molten surface; (2) the surface morphology of molten surface is closely related to the orientation of the resolidified grain; (3) the evolution of surface modifications, for both of the molten and non-molten tungsten surfaces, indicates a strong dependence on the surface temperature and local helium fluence.
