Chiang, H.-Y.; Wiss, T.; Park, Sohyun; Dieste-Blanco, O.; Petry, W. (9. December 2017): TEM analysis of irradiation-induced interaction layers in coated UMo/X/Al trilayer systems (X= Ti, Nb, Zr, Mo). In: Journal of Nuclear Materials, Vol. 499: pp. 558-566

Uranium-molybdenum (UMo) alloy powder embedded in an Al matrix is considered as a promising candidate for fuel conversion of research reactors. A modified system with a diffusion barrier X as coating, UMo/X/Al trilayer (X = Ti, Zr, Nb, and Mo), has been investigated to suppress interdiffusion between UMo and the Al matrix. The trilayer systems were tested by swift heavy ion irradiation, the thereby created interaction zone has been analyzed by scanning transmission electron microscopy (STEM) and energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX). Detailed structural characterization are presented and compared to earlier μ-xrd analysis.
