Electronic stopping power dependence of ion-track size in UO$$_{2}$$ irradiated with heavy ions in the energy range of $$sim$$1MeV/u

Ishikawa, Norito; Sonoda, Takeshi*; Sawabe, Takashi*; Sugai, Hiroyuki*; Sataka, Masao*

Nuclear Instruments and Methods in Physics Research B, 314, p.180 - 184, 2013/11

In order to investigate electronic stopping power dependence of ion-track size in UO$$_{2}$$, ion-tracks in UO$$_{2}$$ irradiated with various ions with the specific energy in the order of 1 MeV/u have been observed by a transmission electron microscope. The ion-tracksize shows monotonic increase as a function of the electronic stopping power. Theion-track size obtained for UO$$_{2}$$ is smaller than that obtained for CeO$$_{2}$$, although these two compounds have same crystallographic structure and similar thermal properties. The ion-track sizes for irradiations with ions having relatively low energy of about1 MeV/u are smaller than those expected from the thermal spike models based on melting temperature criterion. The possible interpretations for the unusually smallion-tracks observed for UO$$_{2}$$ are discussed.

X-ray study of radiation damage in UO$$_{2}$$ irradiated with high-energy heavy ions

Ishikawa, Norito; Sonoda, Takeshi*; Okamoto, Yoshihiro; Sawabe, Takashi*; Takegahara, Keisuke; Kosugi, Shinya*; Iwase, Akihiro*

Journal of Nuclear Materials, 419(1-3), p.392 - 396, 2011/12

 Times Cited Count:10 Percentile:61.22(Materials Science, Multidisciplinary)

In order to characterize the radiation damage due to ion-track formation in UO$$_{2}$$, polycrystalline samples have been irradiated with 210-MeV Xe ions, and measured with XRD (X-ray diffraction) technique using Cu X-ray. We have also tried EXAFS (extended X-ray absorption fine structure) measurement using X-ray near U L$$_{3}$$-edge. The results show that XRD technique detects damage at relatively low fluence of 10$$^{16}$$ ions/m$$^{2}$$ and higher, while the irradiation-induced change of EXAFS spectra is not observed even at highest fluence of 10$$^{19}$$ ions/m$$^{2}$$. The damage detection may be critically influenced by the depth profile of X-ray penetration.

Study on the behavior of oxygen atoms in swift heavy ion irradiated CeO$$_{2}$$ by means of synchrotron radiation X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy

To study the effects of swift heavy ion irradiation on cerium dioxide (CeO$$_{2}$$), CeO$$_{2}$$ sintered pellets were irradiated with 200 MeV Xe ions at room temperature. For irradiated and unirradiated samples, the spectra of X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) were measured. XPS spectra for the irradiated samples show that the valence state of Ce atoms partly changes from +4 to +3. The amount of Ce$$^{3+}$$ state was quantitatively obtained as a function of ion-fluence. The relative amount of oxygen atom displacements, which are accompanied by the decrease in Ce valence state, is 3-5%. This value is too large to be explained in terms of elastic interactions between CeO$$_{2}$$ and 200 MeV ions. The experimental result suggests the contribution of 200 MeV Xe induced electronic excitation to the displacements of oxygen atoms.

Study on effects of heavy ion irradiation on CeO$$_{2}$$ by using synchrotron radiation X-ray absorption spectroscopy; As a simulation study for radiation damage in high-burnup light water reactor fuels

Materials Research Society Symposium Proceedings, Vol.1043, p.179 - 183, 2008/00

CeO$$_{2}$$ thin films were irradiated with 200 MeV Xe ions. Effects of the irradiation were studied by using Extended X-ray Absorption Fine Structure (EXAFS) measurement at SPring-8 synchrotron radiation facility. EXAFS spectra for the irradiated thin films near the Ce K-edge show that the coordination number for oxygen atoms around Ce atom decreases and that the Ce-O Debye-Waller factor increases by the irradiation. The atomic distance between oxygen atom and Ce atom does not vary within the accuracy of EXAFS measurement. The effect of high density electronic excitation on the structure of CeO$$_{2}$$ is discussed.

The New Crossover Project (NXO) is studying effect of fission irradiation on fuel material that research activity is crossing over universities, national and private laboratories. Simulation studies are being performed to find principal and triggering processes of the rim-structure formation in high burnup LWR fuel pellet, using accelerator irradiation and computational calculations. Accelerator irradiation, high energy electron irradiation, fission energy particle beam and ion implantation (ragegas atoms) and combined overlapping irradiations are being performed. For the target of irradiation, CeO$$_{2}$$ isused as simulation of nuclear fuel. The initial results were such as planar structure made by Oxygen defects created by high energy electrons, and surface modification similar to grain-sub-division created by high fluence high energy particle irradiations.
