Irradiation performance of electron beam steel welds for fusion breeder technologies

Structural steels based on body-centred cubic structures are a preferential option for first wall and breeder blanket components in magnetically-confined fusion tokamak designs, due to their enhanced resistance to radiation-induced void swelling, as compared to face-centred cubic materials, and to their high-temperature mechanical strength.
