Current Research Projects

Magnetic tight-binding simulations of defects in iron alloys
P. Soin*, Dr. A.P. Horsfield*, Professor A.P. Sutton*, Dr. D. Nguyen-Manh**
Iron is a key element in the ferritic steels used in hydrogen fusion power plants. Since we are unable to observe directly the point defects generated by irradiation we use atomistic simulations. As empirical potentials do not give a proper description of the magnetic properties and DFT becomes too computationally expensive for large unit cells, we use a magnetic tight binding scheme. We extended an existing Stoner model that employed local charge neutrality to include both onsite and intersite Coulomb interactions. A new charge mixing scheme has been devised to stabilise and accelerate the convergence to self-consistency. We have carried out very well converged simulations using our parallelised code, PLATO. So far we have investigated vacancies and interstitials in ferritic iron. We observe the dependence of the local magnetic moment and charge transfer on the structure of the defects. We will apply the formalism for applications to line and planar defects (Funded by EPSRC and CCFE, *Imperial College London, **CCFE)

First-principles study of phase stabilities and radiation-induced defects in W-Ta and W-V alloys
M. Muzyk*, Professor K. Kurzydlowski*, Professor N. Baluc**, Professor S.L. Dudarev***, Dr. D. Nguyen-Manh***
The main motivation of this project is to use the first-principles modelling tool to address and to predict thermodynamic and kinetic evolutions under neutron irradiation in tungsten alloy materials important for future fusion power plant applications. We choose tungsten-tantalum and tungsten-vanadium alloys because they are candidate materials for DEMO divertor applications due to their high melting point and expected improved ductility and fracture toughness in comparison with pure W. The available experimental phase diagrams for W-Ta and W-V alloys describe the high temperature limit close to the melting point. These diagrams exhibit only the solid solution phases and show no ordered intermetallic phases that in principle should be expected to form at low temperatures (Supported by EURATOM/EFDA, *WUT, **EFPL, ***CCFE)

Magnetic origin of phase precipitations and kinetic phase transformations in irradiated Fe-Cr alloys from ab-initio modelling
Dr. M.Y. Lavrentiev*, Professor S.L. Dudarev*, Dr. D. Nguyen-Manh*
Developing predictive models for Fe-Cr -based ferritic/martensitic steels, which are candidate structural materials for fusion and advanced fission power generation, requires formulating controlled approximations and efficient algorithms for large-scale atomistic modeling. Understanding the stability and dynamics of Fe-Cr alloy system at high temperature under irradiation is a formidable challenge for computational materials science because magnetic fluctuations involving the constituent elements of the alloy result in complex point-defect behavior and phase transformations occurring in the high temperature limit. In this project, we investigate two approaches (many-body Stoner tight-binding Hamiltonian and Magnetic Cluster Expansion) based on first-principles spin-polarized density functional theory (DFT) calculations which address the frustrated magnetic behavior in this system (Supported by EURATOM/EFDA, *CCFE)
