Abstract [en]

We have investigated the behavior of He in UO2, Using the projector-augmented-wave (PAW) method and the generalized gradient approximation (GGA) based on the density functional theory. Total energy calculations with atomic relaxation included have been performed in a 96-atom large supercell. We have found that He has a strong tendency to form a cluster in vicinity of an octahedral interstitial site (OIS) in the UO2 matrix. In addition, the strain energy produced by a He-cluster was found to be sufficient to create point defects of the host atoms in UO2. Our study suggests that He-clusters and He-induced point defects play an important role for the local mechanical properties Of UO2 (C) 2008 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
