Intrinsic Radiation Defects and Their Production Mechanisms

Gennadi Gladyshev


Models and mechanisms of intrinsic radiation defect formation in the metals and alkali-halide crystals are considered. The effect of irradiation conditions (temperature, absorbed dose, etc.) on the formation of the primary and secondary defects, fomation of the aggregate radiation defects (voids), and affection of heat treatment on the properties of irradiated metals are discussed herein. It is noted that low radiation resistance of alkali halide crystals is connected to the under-threshold mechanism of defect formation.
