Irradiation effects in fusion materials

The talk will deliver general and most basic information about the impact of neutron irradiation on the properties/performance of the most common fusion materials currently being considered for the application in ITER and beyond.

In particular, the impact of neutron irradiation on high heat flux, structural and functional materials will be discussed. The aspects of testing programmes performed in fission environments will also be considered as well as their advantages and shortfalls. Finally, the current developments of new EU facilities for neutron irradiation testing will be highlighted.
