Laser Induced Desorption Spectroscopy (LIDS) has been used to investigate the helium desorption from coatings and bulk tungsten in laboratory experiments as a prerequisite for the later application in-situ in the GyM linear device. Tungsten coatings were deposited on a silicon substrate by magnetron sputtering process. After a preliminary surface characterization and before studying the gas desorption by LIDS, both types of tungsten samples were exposed to helium plasma in the GyM linear device. A Nd:YAG laser with constant output power leading to a smooth controllable increase of layer temperature was used, resulting in a complete desorption of gases in a point heated by the laser. The desorbed gases were detected up to 200 amu/e with a QMS (Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer). The results of the application of LIDS on tungsten targets exposed to a wide range of helium fluxes, fluences, and impact energies under different surface temperatures are presented and compared with Thermal Desorption Spectrometry (TDS) and Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS).
