Abstract

The interpretation of experiments on the stability of ordered precipitates in irradiation environments demands the detailed knowledge of the 3-d concentration profiles during the dissolution under the irradiation. They can be calculated by a numerical solution of the appropriate time-differential Ginzburg-Landau (TDGL) equations in adiabatic approximation. The profiles are used for the discussion of the experimentally investigated interdependence of dissolution and disordering of the ordered precipitates under irradiation by field-ion microscopy with atom probe (FIM-AP) and by transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Theoretical correlation coefficients are calculated for various composition profiles. By comparison with the correlation coefficients determined from the experimental FIM-AP data, the dissolution process could be identified. At low temperatures, the ballistic mixing is dominant and the precipitate dissolves by a normal diffusion process. At higher temperatures, the profiles have a non-Gaussian shape during dissolution.
