Erosion and Deposition Mechanisms in Fusion Plasmas

A. Kirschner

Fusion Science and Technology / Volume 53 / Number 2T / February 2008 / Pages 259-277

Technical Paper / Edge Physics and Plasma-Wall Interactions

This paper gives an overview about erosion and deposition processes in fusion machines. The underlying physical and chemical mechanisms are explained. The impact of erosion and deposition on wall lifetime and tritium retention, which define the availability of future fusion machines such as ITER, is discussed.
