  • Production, forming and joining
  • Chemical compatibility and corrosion
  • Irradiation effects
    • Neutron, He and H-Isotope effects
    • Microstructural evolution
    • Mechanical & physical property degradation
  • Composition control and characterization
  • Modeling and experimental validation
  • Thermal and mechanical properties
  • Monitoring, disposal and recycling
  • Health and safety issues
  • High heat flux performance
  • Plasma/tritium interactions
