In this seminar, in the light of a selection of scientific results obtained throughout the past years, I will give an overview of our research themes on ‘Materials and Irradiation’ at the Energy and Environment pole at IJCLab, with a peculiar accent on the use of ion beams to either synthetize, modify or characterize materials. An overview of the JANNuS-SCALP facility [1] will also be presented. Examples will be given on different nuclear materials studied for fission and fusion nuclear applications, and especially on recent results obtained on Oxide Dispersion Strenghthened steels, either to understand the formation of metallic nano-oxides [2], or to study the effects of irradiation and light gas accumulation on their microstructure [3,4].
