Abstract

A series of new low-activation austenitic stainless steels was designed, with the aim of using them in the disposal of waste from fusion tokamak reactors by shallow land burial. This paper presents the results of the last stage of development, which was concerned with the microstructure and tensile properties of these steels. The results show that the development of low-activation austenitic steels is a realistic way to meet the metallurgical and technological challenges of nuclear fusion.
