Heavy ion irradiation as a proxy to neutron irradiation in impure Fe and Fe-Cr alloys

Abstract:

The realisation of nuclear fusion energy will require materials that can withstand high doses of neutron irradiation, and one class of candidate materials for structural applications is reduced-activation ferritic-martensitic (RAFM) steels containing around 9% Cr. The present lack of a fusion neutron source has meant that much of the research into radiation damage has been conducted using specimens irradiated in fission test reactors, or by using heavy ion irradiation as a simulation ...
