  • Number of hours

    • Lectures : 2.0
    • Laboratory works : 6.0
    ECTS : 0.5

Goals

  • Assess which simulation code/software should be used to investigate a given irradiation ageing phenomena ( multi scale approach)
  • Compare simulation results with experimental measurement both carried out to quantify irradiation damage

Content

• Fundamentals of DFT (Density Functional Theory) and application to irradiation damage (structure of condensed matter – Kohn Sham equations, waves function representation…)
• The displacement cascade (displacement threshold, PKA, influence of crystallinity)
• Experimental irradiations and realism with respect to irradiations in power plants (difficulties related to active materials, irradiation spectrum, manipulation…)
• Molecular Dynamics applied to displacement cascades
• Point defects (interstitials, vacancies in different crystallographic structures, complex impurity/interstitials and vacancies, point defects in ceramics)
• Electronic microscopy applied to the analysis of irradiated microstructures
A case study is given to the students
