Scope Neutron and synchrotron radiation sources offer new opportunities to advance the fundamental understanding of nuclear reactor materials, fuels and engineering components. A variety of advanced characterization tools including diffraction, imaging and spectroscopy have recently become available to allow measurements of microstructure and strain over a range of relevant time and length scales, on both pre- and post-irradiated materials, and under in situ conditions including stress and temperature. The symposium will highlight recent experimental efforts and future prospects to characterize material and fuel systems for nuclear reactor application using neutron and synchrotron radiation techniques, including possibilities for in-situ irradiation. Areas covered will include stress/strain mapping, void and crack initiation and propagation, phase stability and phase transformations, characterization of irradiation defects and nanoclusters, and corrosion.
