Abstract

Pulsed spallation neutron sources for the materials structure science are severely influenced by beam impact and radiation damage. We have developed the materials strong to these influence since 2004. In this paper, recent topics are described concerning the development of intergranular corrosion (IGC)-resistant austenitic stainless steel for target vessel and window, radiation-resistant ultra-fine grained tungsten materials (W-TiC) for a solid target, CrN film on a tungsten target by means of a molten-salt method, surface treatment of stainless steel for pitting damage in mercury target. Bubble behavior at the interface of mercury and window glass was also observed to clarify the phenomenon of the pitting damage.
