    Abstract

    The neutron irradiation effects on the window and mirror materials proposed as optical elements for plasma diagnostic components were studied. Specimens were sapphire and KU-quartz as the window material, molybdenum corner cubic reflector, gold-coated mirror and aluminum corner cubic reflector. These materials were irradiated by the Japan Materials Testing Reactor, and transmission and refraction spectrum, change of color and surface roughness were observed.
