Dissertation in the field of advanced energy systems: How atomic-scale defects influence nuclear material properties


VTT's Research Scientist Janne Heikinheimo, M.Sc.(Tech.), will defend the dissertation "Applications of positron annihilation spectroscopy in nuclear materials research".

In the dissertation, crystallographic defects were characterized in oxidized zirconium and proton irradiated tungsten. Gamma detectors and their effects on the accuracy of positron annihilation spectroscopy were also reviewed.
