ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Aerospace Nuclear Science & Technology
Organized to promote the advancement of knowledge in the use of nuclear science and technologies in the aerospace application. Specialized nuclear-based technologies and applications are needed to advance the state-of-the-art in aerospace design, engineering and operations to explore planetary bodies in our solar system and beyond, plus enhance the safety of air travel, especially high speed air travel. Areas of interest will include but are not limited to the creation of nuclear-based power and propulsion systems, multifunctional materials to protect humans and electronic components from atmospheric, space, and nuclear power system radiation, human factor strategies for the safety and reliable operation of nuclear power and propulsion plants by non-specialized personnel and more.

Deuterium ion implantation experiments into Li2TiO3 and TiO2 were performed with various ion fluences to elucidate the role of lithium on deuterium retention behavior in Li2TiO3. The experimental results showed that there were four deuterium trapping states in TiO2; two of them were interacted near the surface and the others were deuterium trapped by E'-center and bound to oxygen with forming TiO-D bond in bulk. For Li2TiO3, there were five trapping states; four of them were the same as those in TiO2 and the other was that bound to oxygen with forming LiO-D bond. The implanted deuterium was preferentially trapped by E'-center with forming hydroxide. LiOD phase was formed as increasing ion fluence. The retention of deuterium trapped by E'-center for Li2TiO3 was less than that for TiO2, indicating that the migration of lithium via irradiation defects during implantation refrains the deuterium retention in Li2TiO3.
