Paper Abstract

First wall Laser Megajoule target chamber has to hold out against several aggressions such as neutrons, x-rays or laser scattered light during fusion experiments. In this paper, two material families: Boron Carbide (B4C) plasma-sprayed coatings and Carbon/Carbon composites (CCC), which might be suitable for the application are presented. The development of the best quality materials was oriented to satisfy various tests. Among these tests, x-ray exposure and outgassing behavior were first investigated, and the obtained results are presented here.
