We have clarified the performance of two tungsten-helium analytical interatomic potentials, one of which, developed by Li et al., is a bond- order potential, and another, developed by Juslin et al., is a combination of embedded atom method potential and pair potential. Using these two potentials, we have simulated and made a full comparison of formation energy and migration energy of different defects including helium and vacancy, binding energies of helium and vacancy with helium- vacancy cluster, surface energy, as well as melting point, with reference to the corresponding results from the first-principles and experiments.
