Hydrogen isotopes plasma-driven permeation (PDP) through F82H coated with two different types of tungsten coatings, i.e., sputter-deposited tungsten (SP-W) and vacuum plasma-sprayed tungsten (VPS-W) has been studied in the temperature range of 300 - 550 ◦C. It has been found that hydrogen isotopes PDP fluxes through VPS-W coated F82H are reduced compared to that through bare F82H. However, the PDP fluxes through SP-W coated F82H are enhanced compared to bare F82H. Reduced or enhanced PDP fluxes are related to the different microstructure of tungsten coatings and its surface recombination characteristics.
