Simulating neutron damage in structural steels for fusion power-plants:

Comparing the effects of protons with heavy ions and fission neutrons


In order to test the materials to be used in future nuclear fusion devices, a materials testing facility capable of recreating the 14MeV neutron radiation is desperately needed. Until such a facility is built, neutron damage must be emulated by other methods such as fission spectrum neutrons, heavy ions, protons or electrons. This project will study the effects of proton irradiation on FeCr binary alloys in the Feritic-Martensitic phase, with an aim to assess their suitability at simulating fusion neutron damage compared with other irradiation types.
