OLGA – efficient full wave code for the coupling of LH grills
Preinhaelter, Josef; Hillairet, J.; Urban, Jakub
2018 - English
The full wave code OLGA, for determining the coupling of a single row lower hybrid launcher (waveguide grills) to the plasma, is extended to handle multirow multijunction active passive structures (like the C3 and C4 launchers on TORE SUPRA) by implementing the scattering matrix formalism. The extended code is still computationally fast because of the use of (i) 2D splines of the plasma surface admittance in the accessibility region of the k-space, (ii) high order Gaussian quadrature rules for the integration of the coupling elements and (iii) utilizing the symmetries of the coupling elements in the multiperiodic structures. The extended OLGA code is benchmarked against the ALOHA-1D, ALOHA-2D and TOPLHA codes for the coupling of the C3 and C4 TORE SUPRA launchers for several plasma configurations derived from reflectometry and interferometery. Unlike nearly all codes (except the ALOHA-1D code), OLGA does not require large computational resources and can be used for everyday usage in planning experimental runs. In particular, it is shown that the OLGA code correctly handles the coupling of the C3 and C4 launchers over a very wide range of plasma densities in front of the grill. Keywords: lower hybrid waves; coupling; large multirow multijunction grills; tokamak; full-wave Fulltext is available at external website.

The role of microstructure on wettability of plasma sprayed yttria stabilized zirconia coatings
Komarov, P.; Čelko, L.; Remešová, M.; Skorokhod, K.; Jech, D.; Klakurková, L.; Slámečka, K.; Mušálek, Radek
2018 - English
Atmospheric plasma spraying utilizing initial powder materials in micrometric size has been successfully used for various applications in different fields of the industry over the past several decades. Nowadays, the new trend in plasma spraying is to use sub-micron or nano-sized powder feedstocks in the form of colloidal suspension. This relatively new technology enables to obtain specific types of dense vertically cracked, fully dense or columnar microstructure. The aim of this work is to investigate the influence of coatings microstructure and topography on its water wetting properties. Two different microstructures, i.e. lamellar and columnar, were sprayed from chemically the same yttria-stabillized zirconia (YSZ) ceramics powders by the means of conventional atmospheric plasma spray and suspension hybrid water stabilized plasma spray techniques, respectively. Microstructural and phase composition of the initial powders and as-sprayed coatings were investigated using optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction techniques. Topography of coatings surface was measured by means of non-contact optical profilometry. The YSZ coatings wettability was evaluated based on water droplet contact angle using Sessile droplet method. The coatings microstructure reveals the important role in the change of droplet contact angle, where lamellar microstructure was found close to hydrophilic-hydrophobic transition and columnar microstructure was found superhydrophobic Keywords: Contact angle; Plasma spraying; Sessile drop method; Water; Yttria stabilized zirconia Available at various institutes of the ASCR

Combined coatings against mechanical wear and corrosion low carbon steel
Brožek, Vlastimil; Pokorný, P.; Kolísko, J.; Vokáč, M.; Mastný, L.; Stoulil, J.
2018 - English
In this study, special ceramic coatings were prepared on low carbon steel (1.0060 - EN 10027-2) via the plasma spraying technique using a WSP®-H plasma generator with output of up to 40 kg/h of aluminum oxide. Corundum coatings were deposited directly on the surface of steel plungers equipped with an anti-corrosion interlayer of zinc phosphate. Coating adhesion properties were tested using pin-off tests (modified ISO 4624) and reached a maximum value of 26 MPa. Corrosion resistance was evaluated by measurements of impedance spectra in the 100 kHz - 10 mHz range in a water solution of sodium sulfate. The capacity of electric double-layer varied depending on the porosity and thickness of the coating. Low-porosity coatings of >1.5 mm thickness had RCT 1.29·105 Ω·m2. The abrasive resistance of coatings was measured by rotary/machining test with SiC cutting knives, using a downforce of 50 kg·cm-2. Abrasion losses decreased with the quality of finish - starting at 0.00266 g cm-2 min-1 down to virtually zero losses after polishing the surface below Ra = 0.55 micro m.

Suspension plasma spraying of sub-stoichiometric titania by hybrid water/argon stabilized plasma torch
Mušálek, Radek; Ctibor, Pavel; Medřický, Jan; Tesař, Tomáš; Kotlan, Jiří; Lukáč, František
2018 - English
In this study, suspension plasma spraying of sub-stoichiometric titania was attempted using hybrid water/argon stabilized plasma torch (WSP-H). Porous coatings with fine cauliflower-like columnar microstructure were successfully deposited in two separate experiments with different power levels of the plasma torch. In both cases, high solid-load content (40 wt. %) of the water-based suspension resulted in considerable coating thickness increase per deposition cycle. Coating annealing and partial remelting of the surface asperities were also achieved by additional pass of plasma torch in front of the coating surface. According to X-ray diffraction, all coatings consisted dominantly of rutile phase. Detailed microscopic observation of the as-sprayed and annealed deposits showed that the local coloration of the coating (ranging from dark blue to beige) was driven by the local overheating of the rough coating surface which could also promote the oxygen intake. Moreover, sample annealing was also observed to increase the sample reflectivity as observed by UV-VIS-NIR scanning spectrophotometry Keywords: Liquid feedstock; Plasma spraying; Suspension; Thermal spraying; Titania; WSP-H Available at various institutes of the ASCR

Thin nitride layers as permeation barriers
Veverka, Jakub; Matějíček, Jiří; Lukáč, František; Pospíšil, D.; Cvrček, L.; Nemanic, V.
2018 - English
Permeation barriers represent one of the crucial fields in materials development for thermonuclear fusion. Primary objective of the barriers is to suppress the permeation of hydrogen isotopes (mainly tritium) from future thermonuclear fusion facilities. Secondary objective is to reduce their retention in structural materials. Expected reactor conditions put high demands on the material, as well as on the final barrier quality. Key properties are tritium permeation reduction, absence of defects (especially cracks), high-temperature stability and corrossion resistance, and compatibility with structural materials (mostly ferritic-martensitic steels). Thin nitride layers, identified as promising permeation barriers, were prepared by diffusion-based nitridation and physical vapour deposition (PVD), and characterized.
