  • Demonstrates the crucial interplay between experimental and theoretical investigations of radiation damage phenomena
  • Examines experimental techniques used to assess radiation damage accumulation in solids
  • Discusses new materials, new electronic devices and novel materials for nanoscale electronic and photonic applications

This is a comprehensive overview of fundamental principles and relevant technical issues associated with the behavior of solids exposed to high-energy radiation. These are important to the development of materials for existing fission reactors or future fusion and advanced reactors for energy production; to the development of electronic devices such as high-energy detectors; and to the development of novel materials for electronic and photonic applications (particularly on the nanoscale). The contents are organized in three major categories: radiation damage fundamentals; materials dependent radiation damage phenomena; special topics including swift ion irradiation effects, nanostructure design via irradiation, radiation detectors, and many others.

The book demonstrates the interplay between experimental and theoretical investigations of radiation damage phenomena. The book explores computer simulation methods ranging from molecular dynamics (MD) simulations of events occurring on short timescales (ps – ns), to kinetic Monte Carlo and kinetic rate theory, which consider damage evolution over times ranging from µs to hours beyond the initial damage event.
