Transmutation-Induced Deposition Profiles in Halos Surrounding Spherical Precipitates
The deposition profiles that form around precipitates undergoing energetic transmutation reactions can be used to study the effects of helium, hydrogen and lithium on microstructural development during neutron irradiation. A completely general derivation has been performed to determine the deposition profile concentrations for any transmutation reaction and precipitate/matrix combination. Calculations of the deposition profiles were performed for the 10B(n, a)⁷Li reaction and selected precipitate/matrix stopping power ratios. With increasing ratio the deposition profiles become more uniform but the reaction products are deposited over larger volumes leading to lower concentrations in the matrix.
