Development and evaluation of first wall materials for the National Ignition Facility

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Several low-Z refractory materials are evaluated for use as the NIF first wall in terms of their cost and ability to survive laser light, target emissions and debris, as well as be cleanable and not outgas excessively. Best performers contain B, C, or both, with B{sub 4}C being the best overall. It appears possible at this time that plasma-sprayed B{sub 4}C can be fabricated with low enough porosity and cost to be preferred to hot-pressed B{sub 4}C, the conservative choice.
