Discussion Topics

What are the structural materials compatible with flibe and over what range of temperature?
   SS304, FS, FS-ODS, V, SiC/SiC....??

What are the maximum temperature limits of the different structural materials (based on which limiting criterion)?

Is there a design window for operation with flibe or flinabe?

What is the lifetime for each material?

Which materials are considered by the fusion material community?

What is the level of development required for each material?

Also, please keep in mind that we are considering an IFE power plant that would be built in a time frame of ~50 years.
