The deuterium inventory in tungsten-coated divertor tiles used during the first full-tungsten plasma-facing wall phase of ASDEX Upgrade was measured by various methods of analysis. The D inventory in the inner divertor was still dominated by codeposition with residual carbon, whereas it was dominated by trapping in the thicker vacuum plasma sprayed tungsten layers at the outer divertor. The total inventory in the divertor area decreased by a factor of 5-10 compared with the period of carbon-dominated plasma-facing wall.
