Title: Kinetic Interaction of Uranium Vacancies and Dislocations in UO2

Understanding how point defects and defect clusters interact with dislocations in urania is important for a number of phenomena. For example, dislocations are one (of many) trap sites in the fuel where fission gases may accumulate and ultimately nucleate fission gas bubbles. Further, some creep mechanisms are governed by the flow of point defects to dislocations. Thus, for a variety of reasons, it is important to examine how dislocations attract and accelerate the kinetics of point defects.
