ABOUT RADIATION DAMAGE OBTAINED IN SIMULATION EXPERIMENTS
Experimental results are reviewed which show that the properties of point defects are completely different from those predicted in the one interstitial model (OIM). A further development of the two interstitial model (TIM) leads to the modified two interstitial model (MTIM) according to which (i) the migration activation energies of point defects decrease with increasing flux of the high energy particles, and (ii) the recombination volumes among the defects and the defect clusters are much larger than previously assumed. The value of irradiation simulation experiments is discussed in the light of these new features of defects.
