The GENESIS ("Study and Nanoanalyses of Irradiation Effects" Group) project aims at developing experimental state of art analyses tools at the nanometer and subnanometer scales for irradiated (and radioactive) materials in order to allow understanding, modelling, and finally simulation of the long time behavior of nuclear plant materials.
Three research groups are involved in top level research in this field in France: the Material Physics Group (GPM-UMR CNRS, Normandy University), the Department of Materials for Nuclear Energy at the CEA Saclay and the Ions, Materials and Photonics research center in Caen (CEA/CNRS/Normandy University). Our laboratories decided to put together their expertises within a joint program in order to consolidate their efforts to establish a plan aimed at overcoming the technological obstacles which were identified in close collaboration with industrial partners (such EDF, AREVA). These skills merged within the framework of a Group of Scientific Interest (GIS-signed in November 2015).
The 1st phase, intiated in September 2012 was extended until 30/06/2018. This extension of the duration of the first phase was requested by the consortium to enable the installation and the putting into service of the Focused ion Beam Scanning Electron Microscope (nuclearized) and its shielded cells for the CEA Saclay. This extension impacts on the final payment of the manufacturers.
