Suppression of radiation-induced point defects by rhenium and osmium interstitials in tungsten

Suzudo, Tomoaki; Hasegawa, Akira*

Modeling of the evolution of radiation-induced defects is important for finding radiation-resistant materials, which would be greatly appreciated in nuclear applications. We apply the first principles method combined with kinetic Monte Carlo to indicate a mechanism to mitigate the effect of radiation by adding particular solute elements that change the migration dimension of interstitials in W crystals. The resultant mechanism is applicable to any body-centered-cubic (BCC) metals whose SIAs have one-dimensional (1D) motion and is expected to provide a general guideline for computational design of radiation-resistant alloys in the field of nuclear applications.
