Abstract

Microstructures of pure Cu and Cu-Ni-Zn alloys irradiated in High Flux Isotope Reactor (HFIR) at 573 K to 9.2 dpa and 673 K to 10.4 dpa have been observed with TEM. Transmutant Ni and Zn of ∼3 wt% were produced during the irradiation. The effect of Ni and Zn production during irradiation was interpreted based on the knowledge obtained from Fast Flux Test Facility (FFTF) irradiated Cu and Cu-Ni-Zn alloys. The effect of He produced from Ni in Cu-5Ni during irradiation in HFIR was consistent with that produced from 10B in Cu-5Ni-10B during irradiation in FFTF.
