The main outstanding issues regarding modeling He diffusion and defect accumulation in α-iron are reviewed. During recent years, first principles calculations have provided a better understanding of defect stability and migration properties in pure α-iron, and accurate values of energetics of He migration and He-vacancy interactions. Such information has been used by several authors to study damage evolution under different irradiation conditions using both kinetic Monte Carlo and rate theory… CONTINUE READING
