Paper Title:
Radiation-Induced Recrystallization of U-Mo Fuel Particles and Radiation-Induced Amorphization of Interaction Products in U-Mo/Al Dispersion Fuel
  Abstract

Two kinds of radiation-induced structural changes were observed in U-Mo/Al dispersion fuel: radiation-induced recrystallization of U-Mo fuel particles and radiation-induced amorphization of interaction products. During irradiation, U-Mo fuel showed refined microstructures of submicron-size grains due to dynamic recrystallization, occurring initially from pre-existing grain boundaries. The interaction products formed by interdiffusion between the U-Mo particles and Al matrix in U-Mo/Al dispersion fuel transformed from crystalline to amorphous during irradiation. In this paper we deal with both of the phenomena simultaneously.
