Plasma Wall Interaction (PWI TCP)

The PWI TCP conducts research to understand the phenomena of interaction between the plasma and the chamber walls and to develop relevant wall materials for applications in fusion power. 

Results of tests in the linear plasma device PSI-2 may inform materials choices for ITER.*


  • Plasma edge properties
  • Characterisation and qualification of first wall materials
  • Surface characteristics
  • Advanced plasma and surface diagnostics
  • Modelling
