    • Abstract


      Formation of ordered arrays of defects has been observed during irradiation for different irradiation conditions and in a wide class of materials. These range from ordering of void cavities, gas bubbles, solid inert gas bubbles, precipitates and formation of periodic walls of defect clusters. This paper gives a brief summary of these experimental observations and outlines the main features of the theoretical approach based on non-equilibrium stability of the irradiation process.
