The formation of Cu precipitates in Cu containing steels is one of the key factors leading to embrittlement in reactor pressure vessel steels. Cu precipitates are formed by the migration of vacancies in steels and the behaviour of these vacancies is therefore important. In the present study, vacancies were introduced into Fe-Cu alloys by electron irradiation with 28 MeV at 100 K. The effects of Cu concentration and tiny Cu precipitates on the migration of vacancies and growth of precipitates in… CONTINUE READING
