Title: In situ transmission electron microscopy He+ implantation and thermal aging of nanocrystalline iron

Due to their high density of interfaces, nanostructured material are hypothesized to show a higher tolerance to radiation damage compared to conventional coarse-grained materials and are on interest for use in future nuclear reactors. In order to investigate the roles of vacancies, self-interstitials, and helium during defect accumulation, and the thermal evolution of such defects, a complex set of in situ TEM experiments were performed in nanocrystalline iron.
