Plasma surface interactions play an important role in the operation of a fusion reactor. One phenomenon is that of radiation blistering, where gas-filled blisters are formed on the surface region of the irradiated solids. The mechanisms for bubble-formation have been extensively studied at higher energies ( > 10keV), although comparatively little work has been done on the effects of low-energy (5keV) ion irradiation.
