The degradation of a bilateral pressed tungsten surface layer by pulsed laser irradiation in the freerunning
mode (power density q = 105–5 × 106 W/cm2, pulse duration τ = 0.7 ms) and the Q-switched mode
(q = 109–1010 W/cm2, τ = 80 ns) as well as under plasma beam irradiation in a plasma focus (PF) device (q =
108–1012 W/cm2, τ = 10–100 ns) has been investigated. The features of the degradation, erosion, and structural
changes in the tungsten surface layer under different irradiation conditions have been determined. It has
been shown that the use of PF devices in combination with laser equipment is promising for the simulation
of the extreme radiation–thermal effects in materials that are typical of thermonuclear fusion devices with
magnetic and inertial plasma confinement.
