Title: Local structure of NiPd solid solution alloys and its response to ion irradiation

The local structure of Ni$-$Pd solid solution alloys with compositions of Ni 80Pd 20 and Ni 50Pd 50 was investigated with anomalous X-ray diffraction, X-ray absorption and theoretical calculation/simulation. The fcc lattice is distorted for both alloys, and the Pd$-$Pd atomic pair distance is +4.4% and +1.4% larger than ideal values in Ni 80Pd 20 and Ni 50Pd 50 alloys, respectively. The corresponding atomic pair distance of Ni$-$Ni is -1.8% and -3.0% less than the ideal values. Different short-range orders in the alloys were quantitatively identified at the atomic level. In Ni 80Pd 20, Pd atoms are likely to form Pd$-$Pd pairs, while Pd atoms are connected with Pd atoms in the second shell in the equiatomic solid solution alloy. Upon ion irradiation, little change of interatomic distance, but modification of chemical short-range order was observed. The number of Pd$-$Pd pairs decreases to the lowest value at 0.1 dpa, and further irradiation make it increase.
