Erosion and re-deposition were studied for graphite tiles from W-shaped divertor region of JT-60U in Jun. 1997 - Oct. 1998 periods in which more than 3000 D-D discharges were made with all-carbon wall with boronizations and inner-private flux pumping. On the outer divertor targets, erosion was dominant: maximum erosion depth of around 20 micrometers was measured, while on the inner targets, re-deposition was dominant: columnar structure layers and laminar/columnar-layered structures of maximum thickness around 60 micrometers were found. Through XPS analysis, compositions of the re-deposition layers at a around mid point on the inner target were 94 - 95 at% C, 3 - 4 at% B, and less than 0.6 at% O, Fe, Cr, and Ni. Boron is mainly bound to Carbon. No continuous deposition layers on the dome top/outer wing, while deposition layers were found on the inner wing. Observed in/out asymmetry is attributable to in/out asymmetry of plasma particle conditions in the divertor region.
