Effects of neutron irradiation on YAG laser welded V-4Cr-4Ti alloy were studied in JMTR (Japanese Materials Testing Reactor). The samples with and without post-weld heat treatment (PWHT) at 1073 K were irradiated in the temperature range of 673-873 K up to the dose of 0.45 dpa. After the irradiation, the microstructure and Vickers hardness of the welded samples were compared of the base metal, which were simultaneously irradiated at the same irradiation cycle.
