Note the different day of the week. The availability of future fusion devices such as a Fusion Nuclear Science Facility (FNSF) or DEMO greatly depends on long operating lifetimes of plasma facing components in their divertors. ORNL is designing the Material-Plasma Exposure eXperiment (MPEX), a superconducting magnet, steady state device to address the plasma material interactions of fusion reactors. MPEX will utilize a new high-intensity plasma source concept based on RF technology. This source concept will allow the experiment to cover the entire expected plasma conditions in the divertor of...

Plasma facing materials (PFMs) in a fusion device like ITER/DEMO have to withstand severe environmental conditions such as high thermal loads and particle fluxes. These exposure conditions may cause a deterioration of the heat removal capability of the material and/or component. In order to ensure that designs of plasma facing components are suitable for an application under such exposure conditions detailed qualification programs are required.
