Investigators from Los Alamos National Laboratory Target Nanoindentation (Nanoindentation creep study on an ion beam irradiated oxide dispersion strengthened alloy)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Current study results on Nanoindentation have been published. According to news reporting from Los Alamos, New Mexico, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "Oxide dispersion strengthened (ODS) alloys are considered advanced structural materials for nuclear application due to their radiation tolerance and creep resistance."

The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Los Alamos National Laboratory, "Ion beam irradiation is used to study the property changes due to displacement damage. In this work 1 dpa displacement damage in an ODS was produced followed by a nanoindentation creep study at temperatures up to 600 degrees C to evaluate the changes in mechanical properties due to irradiation."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Converted yield strength (YS) and creep related parameters are reported."
