Abstract

A novel material design for nuclear fusion reactors is proposed based on Cu-Diamond and W-Diamond nanocomposites. The proposed design involves the production of W/W-Diamond/CuDiamond/Cu functionally graded material. W, W-Diamond, Cu-Diamond and Cu nanostructured composite powders were produced independently by mechanical alloying and subsequently consolidated/welded through spark plasma sintering. Modulation of processing parameters allowed controlling the extent of unfavourable conversion of Diamond into tungsten carbide, as well as to overcome the Diamond intrinsically difficult bonding to copper. Microstructural features and microhardness of the as-produced materials are presented.
