Tungsten (W) samples, undamaged and damaged by irradiation with 2.4 MeV Cu, were placed flush to the first wall of Large Helical Device (LHD) nearby the divertor target, and were exposed to 134 shots of hydrogen plasma discharges. Thereafter, to evaluate the enhancement of hydrogen isotope retention for W due to LHD hydrogen (H) plasma exposures, the W samples with and without LHD H plasma exposures were implanted with 1.0 keV D2+. For W samples without LHD H plasma exposures, the D retention in the damaged W was by a factor of ∼6 higher than that in the undamaged W. After LHD H plasma exposures, the carbon layers ∼4 nm in thickness were deposited on the W surfaces. Due to trapping of D atoms in the carbon layers, the D retention enhancement for undamaged and damaged W samples exposed to LHD H plasmas was significantly higher than that for the W samples without LHD H plasma exposures.
