Multiscale modeling of helium-vacancy cluster nucleation under irradiation; A Kinetic Monte-Carlo approach

Suzudo, Tomoaki ; Yamaguchi, Masatake  ; Kaburaki, Hideo; Ebihara, Kenichi

We applied ab initio calculation and an object kinetic Monte Carlo modeling to the study of He-vacancy cluster nucleation under irradiation in bcc and fcc Fe, which are surrogate materials for ferritic/martensitic and austenitic steels, respectively. The ab initio calculations provided parameters for the object kinetic Monte Carlo model, such as the migration energies of point defects and the dissociation energies of He and vacancy to He-vacancy clusters. We specially focused on the simulation of high He/dpa irradiation such as He-implantation into the materials and tracked the nucleation of clusters and the fate of point defects such as SIAs, vacancies, and He atoms. We found no major difference of He-vacancy cluster nucleation between bcc and fcc Fe when we ignore the intracascade clustering even if the migration energies of point defects are significantly different between the two crystals.
