The structural materials for fusion reactors such as ITER and DEMO will probably be steels. As long as no fusion device for material testing exists, data on radiation damage in candidate steels can only be obtained by simple irradiation conditions, such as by mixed energy spectra neutrons, protons and/or alpha particles. This work deals with the study of the Cr-Mn austenitic steel AMCR 0033, a material expected to produce less long-term waste than Ni-Cr steels. The steel was alpha-implanted, either at elevated temperature or at room temperature and subsequently aged. The results of these treatments are described in detail.
