Reactor Irradiations at 15°K
Early attempts to describe the basic nature of radiation damage were based upon measurement of physical changes occurring in materials, which were bombarded at or near room temperature. Almost at the outset of research in this field, it was recognized that some radiation induced defects might be mobile below room temperature. Observation of these defects could be made only if they were frozen into the material during bombardment and subsequently studied under controlled low temperature conditions.
