Irradiation-Induced Cavity Lattice Formation in Metals

  • J. H. Evans
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSE, volume 183)

Abstract

The formation of cavity lattices in materials includes a large variety of experimental observations on void and bubble lattices following irradiation or ion implantation. The fundamental characteristic of the phenomenon is the close relationship between the cavity lattice crystallography and that of the host crystal. In this review, experimental results on metals will be highlighted, but analogous results on non-metals, eg. calcium fluoride, alumina and silicon, will also be included. Recent theoretical models will be discussed with emphasis on those that explain the crystallography. Anisotropic self-interstitial diffusion, in two dimensions for metals and in one dimension for alumina and calcium fluoride, is a strong candidate to explain the majority of results.
