The world's first megawatt-class lead-bismuth target, MEGAPIE (MEGAwatt Pilot Experiment), was dismantled and post irradiation examination (PIE) samples were prepared at PSI hot-lab. The samples were shipped to each institutions including JAEA. The samples were cut from the beam window (BW, T91) and the flow guide tube (FGT, SS316L). And all samples are prepared without LBE. The irradiation conditions of the specimens irradiated at SINQ target were as follows: proton energy was 580 MeV, irradiation temperatures were ranged from 251 to 341$$^{circ}$$C, and displacement damage levels were ranged from 0.16 to 1.57 dpa. PIE including SP (small punch) and three point bending tests were performed. SP tests were executed for T91 and SS316L specimens at R.T. in air condition. Specimen size for SP test with 2.4 mm steel-ball is 8 mm $$times$$ 8 mm $$times$$ 0.5 mm. T91 specimens were cut from the Spitze (triangle) sample and polished to thickness of 0.5 mm. The OM/SP specimens of SS316L were polished to thickness of 0.5 mm. Three point bending tests were executed for SS316L specimens at R.T. in air condition. The bend bar specimens of SS316L without notch were employed. Results of the SP tests and three point bending tests on the irradiated specimens will be presented at the workshop. Cross sectional observation on the Spitze sample and microstructural observation by TEM will be also reported.
