Title: Microstructure Evolution and Mechanical Response of Nanolaminate Composites Irradiated with Helium at Elevated Temperatures

Abstract

In this paper, we summarize recent work on helium (He) interaction with various heterophase boundaries under high temperature irradiation. We categorize the ion-affected material beneath the He-implanted surface into three regions of depth, based on the He/vacancy ratio. The differing defect structures in these three regions lead to the distinct temperature sensitivity of He-induced microstructure evolution. The effect of He bubbles or voids on material mechanical performance is explored. Finally, overall design guidelines for developing materials where He-induced damage can be mitigated in materials are discussed.
