We develop a dynamic model for the evolution of an ensemble of hundreds of interacting irradiation-induced mobile nanoscale defects in a micrometre size sample. The model uses a Langevin defect dynamics approach coupled to a finite element model, treated using the superposition method. The elastic field of each defect is described by its elastic…

The evolution of the defect microstructure in materials at high temperature is dominated by diffusion-mediated interactions between dislocations, vacancy clusters and surfaces. This gives rise to complex non-linear couplings between interstitial and vacancy-type dislocation loops, cavities and the field of diffusing vacancies that adiabatically …

CALANIE (CALculation of ANIsotropic Elastic energy) program evaluates an elastic interaction correction to the total energy of a localized object, for example a defect in a solid material simulated using an {it ab initio} or molecular statics approach, resulting from the use of periodic boundary conditions. The correction, computed using a fully el…

An analytic, bond-order potential BOP is proposed and parametrized for the gallium arsenide system. The potential addresses primary and secondary bonding and the valence-dependent character of heteroatomic bonding, and it can be combined with an electron counting potential to address the distribution of electrons on the GaAs surface. The potential …

Advection–diffusion equations occur in a wide variety of fields in many contexts of active and passive transport in fluids and plasmas. The effects of sheared advective flows in the presence of irreversible processes such as diffusion and viscosity are of considerable current interest in tokamak and astrophysical contexts, where they are thought …

Particle beams have been developed at the Culham Laboratory for many years, mainly for application to the production of high-temperature plasmas. These developments included demonstration offundamental plasma physics such as particle trapping, heating, and current drive coupled to continuous advances in the physics and technology of ion beam produc…
