Structural materials in nuclear plants are affected to aging degradation and irradiation damage. Nondestructive measurement of materials damage is a preferred method for the diagnosis of nuclear plants. The previous studies are focused on magnetic property, which is able to measure by nondestructive and sensitive for microstructure and variation of local chemical compositions. However, whole sample is needed to magnetize by large magnets in the previous method, and the sample is easily influenced by magnetic flux at the edge of sample. This issue makes magnetic method difficult to apply to nuclear plants. The pointing magnetization technique was developed for a local magnetization of samples with a small magnet. It is the first time to apply this method on austenitic stainless steels for fast reactor structural material. The measurement results show that austenitic steels have increased magnetic flux density as dose increases. And magnetic flux density is dependent on irradiation temperature. These results indicate pointing magnetize technique suggested the possibility of the irradiation damage evaluation of austenitic stainless steel.
