Effect of W self-implantation and He plasma exposure on early-stage defect and bubble formation in tungsten

Thompson, Matt; Drummond, Dale; Sullivan, James; Elliman, Robert; Kluth, Patrick; Kirby, N; Riley, Daniel; Corr, Cormac


To determine the effect of pre-existing defects on helium-vacancy cluster nucleation and growth, tungsten samples were self-implanted with 1 MeV tungsten ions at varying fluences to induce radiation damage, then subsequently exposed to helium plasma in the MAGPIE linear plasma device. Positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopy was performed both immediately after self-implantation, and again after plasma exposure. After self-implantation vacancies clusters were not observed near the sample...[Show more]
