Abstract

A quick, efficient experimental method for screening the temperature and dose dependencies of swelling in ion-bombarded metals has been presented. The temperature-gradient specimen holder permits a continuous temperature drop across the specimen to be maintained during irradiation. Separate beam ports allow three dose levels to be attained for any given run, or they may be used to compare swelling with and without helium injection. Postirradiation step-height measurements reveal integrated void-swelling values as a function of temperature and dose.
