Abstract: Transmission electron microscopy on UO2 has been performed for more than 35 years. The features investigated included fission gas bubbles, and fission product precipitates in UO2, the microstructure of deformed UO2 and others. More recently, high burnup UO2 has been investigated in TEM [e.g. 3] and lattice plane resolution was achieved in ion implanted UO2, however without revealing details of the UO2 structure or of radiation damage. A phenomenon occurring at extended burnup in UO2 fuel has recently gained much interest.
