The objective of this project is to explore fundamental mechanisms through which interfaces nanocrystalline grain boundaries or layer interface in multilayers attract radiation induced point defects, expedite annihilation of vacancies and interstitials, and thus restore strong capability to absorb radiation induced point defects. The ultimate goal of this project is to construct unique interfaces to significantly enhance radiation tolerance of metallic materials.
