Description

Speaker:  Begoña Gómez-Ferrer Herrán, CIEMAT

Structural materials in fusion reactors, when subject to 14 MeV-neutron irradiation, will suffer displacement damage together with transmutation effects. Modelling of  materials helps understanding radiation damage mechanisms, which is important for the development of radiation-resistant alloys. The idea is to verify experimentally the theoretical predictions made by modelling. Resistivity measurements provide indirect information on population of vacancies, interstitials and their clusters. We have developed and adjusted an electrical resistivity measurement system of ion-irradiated samples at cryogenic temperatures and we are able to follow-up the damage thermal annealing.
