Note on the paper of DE Peacock and AA Johnson, entitled - stage 3 - recovery in neutron irradiated molybdenum and niobium

Jos Nihoul

    Research outputpeer-review


    A re-analysis Is presented of Peacock and Johnson's data on
    neutron irradiated molybdenum and biobium [Peacock, D.E.. and Johnson, A.A.,
    1963, Phil, Mag., 8, 563]. In particular it is shown that stage I I I of these b.c.c. metals. Is caused by a second-order recovery process, just as is stage III of the f.c.c. metals. Hence it is concluded that these results can hardly be explained by single vacancy migration, a possible mechanism being interstial migration to vacancies.
