The microstructural effect of low dose neutron irradiation and subsequent high temperature tempering in the reduced activation ferritic/martensitic steel Optifer (9.3 Cr, 0.1 C, 0.50 Mn, 0.26 V, 0.96 W, 0.66 Ta, Fe bal wt%) has been studied using small-angle neutron scattering (SANS). The investigated Optifer samples had been neutron irradiated, at 250 °C, to dose levels of 0.8 dpa and 2.4 dpa. Some of them underwent 2 h tempering at 770 °C after the irradiation. The SANS measurements were carried out at the D22 instrument of the High Flux Reactor at the Institut Max von Laue - Paul Langevin, Grenoble, France. The differences observed in nuclear and magnetic SANS cross-sections after subtraction of the reference sample from the irradiated one suggest that the irradiation and the subsequent post-irradiation.
