Design of a capsule for irradiating graphite at temperatures up to 2000/sup 0/C

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A non-instrumented capsule has been designed for irradiating graphite samples at temperatures up to 2000/sup 0/C, and a device for measuring the temperature has been designed and laboratory tested. Tungsten heater elements used to help achieve the high temperatures were found to react with the graphite even though there was no direct contact. Despite this reaction, laboratory tests indicate that the tungsten heater elements will be suitable for irradiations up to three or four weeks in duration. A description of the materials and properties to be tested for fusion reactor applications is also given.
