Ion Irradiation Damage in Fusion Reactor Materials and the Effects on Tritium Retention

Commercial fusion reactors will play host to some of the most extreme conditions that engineered components will have endured. Displacement damage in these components is caused by high energy neutrons. However, self-ion irradiation can be used as an analogy to study. Retention of hydrogen isotope fuel species, deuterium and tritium, in the defects caused by displacement damage is of key interest in materials selection for future reactors.
