Abstract

Abstract Erosion/deposition distribution and hydrogen isotope behavior in the JT-60U plasma-facing wall were investigated. Distribution of the tritium, which was produced by D–D nuclear reaction, was not correlated with erosion/deposition distribution. The tritium distribution can be explained by the distribution of high-energy tritium ion-implantation due to ripple loss. Deuterium distribution in the divertor region was different from the tritium distribution and not well correlated with the deposition. The highest D/C was ∼0.05 at the bottom of the outer dome wing, which is much less than that observed in other tokamaks. For the deuterium retention, at least two retention processes (ion-implantation and co-deposition) were found on the dome region. The systematic dust collection gave the small amount of dust (∼7 g: 0.2 mg/s production) in the whole vessel of JT-60U. Deposition was observed at the remote area of the outer divertor region.
