Abstract [en]

The divertor surfaces in JET with ITER-like wall (ILW) have been studied using micro ion beam analysis (mu-IBA) methods and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Deposited layers with beryllium as main constituent had been formed during plasma operations through 2011-2012. The deuterium trapping and impurity deposition were non-uniform, frequently enhanced within pits, cracks and valleys, regions reaching in size from 10 mu m to 200 mu m. The impurity deposition and fuel retention were correlated with the surface slope with respect to the direction of ion incidence. Typically more than 70% of the total measured areal density of trapped D was found in less than 30% of the surface area. This is of consequence for the interpretation of other surface analyses and in extrapolation from fuel retention in JET with ITER-like wall and rough divertor surfaces to ITER with smoother surfaces.
