Abstract

Even if the Binary Collision Approximation does not take into account relaxation processes at the end of the displacement cascade, the amount of displaced atoms calculated within this framework can be used to compare damages induced by different facilities like pressurized water reactors (PWR), fast breeder reactors (FBR), high temperature reactors (HTR) and ion beam facilities on a defined material. In this paper, a formalism is presented to evaluate the displacement cross-sections pointing out the effect of the anisotropy of nuclear reactions. From this formalism, the impact of fast neutrons (with a kinetic energy En superior to 1 MeV) is accurately described. This point allows calculating accurately the displacement per atom rates as well as primary and weighted recoil spectra. Such spectra provide useful information to select masses and energies of ions to perform realistic experiments in ion beam facilities.
