M. L. Hoppe, B. A. Vermillion

Fusion Science and Technology / Volume 55 / Number 4 / May 2009 / Pages 461-464

Technical Paper / Eighteenth Target Fabrication Specialists' Meeting

Recent advances in glass shell production from the pyrolysis of silicon-doped glow discharge polymers have led to the new ability to manufacture glass shells with germanium dopant in the wall. Comparison of the strength and helium permeability properties of these glass shells relative to their pure silicon dioxide counterparts is presented.
