Characterisation of deuterium distributions in corroded zirconium alloys using high-resolution SIMS imaging

Abstract:

Hydrogen diffusion through the oxide grown on Zr alloys by aqueous corrosion processes plays a critical role in determining the rate of hydrogen pickup (HPU) which can result in embrittlement of fuel cladding and limit the burnup of the nuclear fuel it encapsulates. Mapping the hydrogen/deuterium distributions in these oxide layers, especially in the barrier layer close to the metal/oxide interface, is a powerful way to understand the mechanism of both oxidation and hydrogen pickup. Here we h...
