Matériaux et Irradiation

The scientific activity of the team "Materials and irradiation (MIR)" is focused on materials for energy applications (mostly nuclear and photovoltaic energies), with a special emphasis put on the role played by ion beams, either to modify material properties and/or to generate extreme irradiation conditions and to characterize solids, for studies related to Solid State Chemistry and Physics.

For all these points (described below), we have an extensive use of the SCALP ion accelerator facility of the lab, where are available ion implantation/irradiation, ion beam analysis, and in situ TEM with ions experiments at JANNuS-Orsay [1].

The different thematics are described below :

  1. Fundamental studies and modelling on particle-solid interactions
  2. Radiation effects in oxides and carbides (fuels, confinement and/or transmutation of radioactive waste)
  3. Behaviour of steels under ion irradiation and ion beam synthesis (structural materials for current and future fission and fusion reactors)
  4. Materials for photovoltaic energy

Why using ion beams ?

[1three of us are local contacts, and one is the scientific leader. JANNuS-Orsay consists in coupling a transmission electron microscope (TEM) to two ion accelerators, allowing in situ observation of single/dual ion beam effects in a solid material. JANNuS (Joint Accelerators for Nanosciences and Nuclear Simulation) is a multi-ion beam facility located on two sites Orsay and Saclay, managed by CNRS/IN2P3 and Université Paris-Sud for JANNuS-Orsay, and CEA/DEN for JANNuS-Saclay, and linked by a Grouping Scientific Interest (GIS) (
