Nuclear power developments in China and the world
The development of human society and technology is closely correlated to the means of energy acquisition, utilization method, efficiency, and spectrum of applications. High quality of life and sustainable socioeconomic development require a sustainable and reliable energy supply. Wealth, health, food, water, infrastructure, education, and even life expectancy itself strongly correlate with the consumption of energy per capita. Having an adequate, reliable, affordable, eco-friendly, and sustainable supply of energy is becoming more crucial for economic development and improving human well-being.

The structure and concentration distribution of He, H, and D in the ion implanted zone following simultaneous He-D irradiation in W was characterized. A shift in He bubble size from nanometer to tens of nanometers was observed between 800 K < T < 1000 K. The bubble field was found to extend to depths of 30-40 nm with mean concentrations of 4-5 at.%.. An order of magnitude increase in He trapping was observed at 800 K when the ion energy was increased from 0.3 to 1.0 keV. Depth profiles of the trapped D at 500 K indicatea marked decrease in the trapped amount coinciding with the He bubble layer. Conversely, enrichment in hydrogen concentration was observed. One hydrogen atom was found to trap in ratio with ~6 He atoms. Such preferential trapping of hydrogen appears to be an important process in the reduction of D diffusion into W due to He effects.
