We will review both the advantages and disadvantages for thin foil irradiations in three areas of experiments on nuclear materials. A traditional area of experiments using in situ ion irradiation is that of fundamental damage mechanisms. In many of these experiments the presence of the near foil surfaces plays a minor or unimportant role. A second area of more recent interest is the use of in situ ion irradiation data to establish simulation model parameters that can predict irradiation microstructure in both ion irradiation of thin foils with strong surface effects and in neutron irradiation of bulk metals. Finally, a third area of application of thin foil ion irradiations is that of high dose. Can in situ ion irradiation be used to measure or predict the performance of new advanced materials for nuclear applications under extreme high dose conditions?
