Computational study of crystal defect formation in Mo by a machine learning molecular dynamics potential

In this work, we study the damage in crystalline molybdenum material samples due to neutron bombardment in a primary knock-on atom (PKA) range of 0.5–10 keV at room temperature. We perform classical



Improving atomic displacement and replacement calculations with physically realistic damage models

Two new complementary displacement production estimators and atomic mixing functions are proposed that extend the NRT-dpa by providing more physically realistic descriptions of primary defect creation in materials and may become additional standard measures for radiation damage quantification.

Analytical interatomic potential for modeling nonequilibrium processes in the W–C–H system

A reactive interatomic potential based on an analytical bond-order scheme is developed for the ternary system W–C–H. The model combines Brenner’s hydrocarbon potential with parameter sets for W–W,

On representing chemical environments

It is demonstrated that certain widely used descriptors that initially look quite different are specific cases of a general approach, in which a finite set of basis functions with increasing angular wave numbers are used to expand the atomic neighborhood density function.

Accuracy and transferability of Gaussian approximation potential models for tungsten

We introduce interatomic potentials for tungsten in the bcc crystal phase and its defects within the Gaussian approximation potential framework, fitted to a database of first-principles density

Hydrogenic retention in irradiated tungsten exposed to high-flux plasma

Two sets of identical tungsten (W) targets are irradiated at 300 K with 12.3 MeV W4+ ions to peak damage levels ranging from 0.5 to 10 displacements per atom (dpa). This results in a damage profile
