Radiation-Resistant and Refractory Metals
Tungsten-fibre-reinforced tungsten - a brittle material toughened
Radiation-Resistant and Refractory Metals : 16 September, 2013
Tungsten is particularly suitable as material for highly stressed parts of a fusion vessel enclosing a hot fusion plasma, it being the metal with the highest melting point. A disadvantage, however, is its brittleness, which under stress makes it fragile and prone to damage. A novel, more resilient compound material has now been developed by Max Planck Institute for Plasma Physics (IPP) at Garching. It consists of homogeneous tungsten with coated tungsten wires embedded. A feasibility study has just shown the basic suitability of the new compound, which might also be of interest beyond the field of fusion research.
 
New alloy verified for safer disposal of spent nuclear energy fuel
