Small scale mechanics applied to nuclear materials

Abstract:

Ion implantation is increasingly used as a cost effective and safe alternative to neutron irradiation in the study of materials for future nuclear applications. However, the micron-sized layers of radiation damage necessitate the use of small scale testing techniques to obtain mechanical properties data from these materials. This thesis explores such techniques, highlighting the relative merits and limitations of nanoindentation, and the deflection of FIB-machined specimens, in a variety o...
