Researchers at Russia’s NRNU MEPhI (National Research University - Moscow Power Engineering Institute) are investigating the accumulation of helium and deuterium in promising "smart" W-Cr-Y alloys for use in thermonuclear reactors. The results of the study were published in the Journal of Nuclear Materials. The interaction of plasma with the inner wall of a fusion reactor are a major obstacle to achieving fusion energy, explained Zori Arutyunyan, Candidate of Physical & Mathematical Sciences, and Junior Researcher at MEPhI’s Department of Plasma Physics.
