Tungsten coating on the first wall in ITER is proposed to reduce in-vessel tritium retention. However, it is possibility that carbon based materials would be used at high heat load components such as limiter. To predict the tritium retention in tungsten coating, it is essential to investigate the effects of carbon impurity on deuterium retention in tungsten coating. In this study, effects of carbon impurity on deuterium retention in the tungsten coating exposed to JT-60U divertor plasmas were investigated. Deuterium was trapped by carbon which was implanted and accumulated in the tungsten coating during the plasma discharge. D/C ration of 0.04-0.08 in the tungsten coating was reached to 1/2-1/4 compared to T/C ration in carbon co-deposition layer. Therefore, simultaneous use of carbon armor materials and tungsten coating would enhance tritium retention in tungsten coating.
