Dr. Alexander Bakaev

Multiscale modelling of

  • radiation damage in austenitic steels (nucleation and growth of radiation defects)
  • hardening of austenitic steels under irradiation (interaction of dislocations with radiation defects)
  • radiation-induced degradation and plasma isotopes retention in materials for fusion applications
  • effects of minor alloying elements entering ferritic steels for nuclear applications

 

On the 10th of July 2014 Alexander Bakaev has been awarded with the ENEN PhD 2014 prize for the best presentation.
