Implantation, Retention and Release of Hydrogen Isotopes in Solids

  • W. Möller
  • J. Roth


A review is given of the physical mechanisms involved in the interaction of fast hydrogen ions with solids, their diffusion and trapping in the solid lattice after slowing down, and the surface recombination allowing them to get reemitted. Analytical and computational models are discussed which describe the buildup of hydrogen inventory in a vessel wall and its release through the surfaces. They are applied to characterize wall material candidates for fusion devices with respect to their interaction with hydrogen isotopes, and to compare their suitability as seen from plasma control and safety demands.
