As a contribution to the CRP on "Plasma–Wall Interaction with Reduced Activation Steel Surfaces in Fusion Devices", over 2016-2017 we have performed both computational assessment and certain experimental work to characterize the impact of high flux deuterium plasma on the iron and several selected RAFM steels. In both cases, the analysis was mainly dedicated to understanding of the trapping and retention of D atoms in the matrix, and microstructural changes induced by the high flux plasma.
