Nuclear fusion is one of the most promising energy source to fill the world’s energetic needs in the future. The most advanced technology in this field is the nuclear fusion by magnetic confinement, used in tokamak reactors as ITER. Research in this field remains however intense and many efforts are made in material research that shall compose the structural components of future reactors. Among them, plasma facing components (PFC) shall be exposed to extreme working conditions. This work deals with the fabrication and characterization of pure Cr and Cr-W alloys in order to investigate the possibility to use it in high temperature applications such as in the divertor of a tokamak reactor.
