Silicon carbide is a promising material for advanced fission reactors due to its exceptional intrinsic properties, including low activation, irradiation stability, and chemical and environmental inertness. However, joining SiC with metals, specifically bcc Fe-Cr alloys, remains a challenge. Diffusion and mechanical bonding have been explored to construct SiC/metal joints, but require interlayers to inhibit the SiC/metal interfacial reaction. Interlayers produce stress concentrations and are not easily scalable. Instead, this study hypothesizes that radiation induced segregation, which produces Cr, W, and Si surface segregation in bcc Fe-Cr alloys, can inhibit the SiC/metal reaction. Specimens of ODS 9YWTV PM1 and PM2 were irradiated.with 5.0 MeV Fe++ to 1, 3, and 100 dpa at 500°C. Radio frequency magnetron sputtering at 25-500°C was then used to coat specimens with SiC. Cross-sectional TEM will be used to quantify the extent of RIS and interfacial reaction as a function of irradiation dose and reaction temperature.
