Abstract Scope Detailed characterization of the function enabling nm-scale precipitates in important structural alloy systems is very challenging. All applicable techniques have limitations and blind spots. Here we focus on the similarities and difference in characterizing nm-sized Cu-Mn-Ni-Si precipitates in irradiated RPV steels, in terms of their number densities (N), sizes (d), mole fractions (f) and compositions. The characterization techniques include APT, SANS, SAXS, XRD, TEM and a combined resistivity-Seebeck coefficient method. The varied techniques are applied to the same alloys and irradiation conditions. The experimental results are also compared to thermodynamics calculations. The comparisons indicate that the nominally high Fe contents in nm-scale precipitates are an APT artifact. Additional evidence regarding the artifacts, and the physical reasons are summarized based on correlative TEM-APT tomography, analysis of hit map sequences, and FIM results in the literature. The multiple contributors to this critical assessment will be listed at the time of the presentation.
