The 11th International Ural Seminar on Radiation Damage Physics of Metals and Alloys
The International Ural Seminar on Radiation Damage Physics of Metals and Alloys is held every two years near to the city of Kyshtym (the Chelyabinsk Region, Russia). The Seminar is organized by the Russian Federal Nuclear Center – All-Russia Research Institute of Technical Physics (RFNC-VNIITF, Snezhinsk), the Institute of Metal Physics of UB RAS (Ekaterinburg), the Scientific Board on Radiation Physics of Solids of RAS.
Main subjects of the Seminar:
- general problems of radiation damage physics;
- materials for nuclear and thermonuclear power engineering, new approaches to creation of radiation-resistant oxide dispersion-hardened (DUO) structural steels;
- the features of processes occurring in structural materials at high-dose neutron and ion irradiation;
- new tendencies in physics of strongly correlated d- and f-electron systems;
- radiation effects in magnets, superconductors, semiconductors and insulators;
- radiation technologies in making of materials with preset properties;
- facilities and techniques of experiment.
There are reports related to effect of irradiation on changes in microstructure and properties of metals and alloys; direct atomistic modeling (molecular dynamics, first-principle calculations) of both the radiation damage and radiation defects evolution proper, and the properties of materials after radiation exposure, including changes in microstructure, mechanical and thermodynamic properties, and effect of irradiation on electronic structure and magnetic properties; effects of irradiation, structural inheritance in actinides, their alloys and model analogs; topical fundamental problems of d, 4f and 5f materials with strong electron correlations, including their structural and magnetic properties, ordering effects, quantum critical points, properties of systems with heavy fermions and intermediate valence, superconductivity, phase transitions and electron localization.
Sessions of the traditional Young Beginners’ School will be also scheduled. The School participants, whose age at the time of carrying out of the Seminar does not exceed 35 years, make 20-minute oral reports at the Seminar sessions. The School Awards Committee including leading scientists gives its judgments on the quality and competence of presentations by the young participants of the Seminar, names the winners and hands out Diplomas of the Organizing Committee and valuable awards.
