The effective diffusivity of helium in thin iron films is quantified using spatially resolved stochastic cluster dynamics and object kinetic Monte Carlo simulations. The roles of total displacement dose (in DPA), damage rate, helium to DPA ratio, layer thickness, and damage type (cascade damage vs Frenkel pair implantation) on effective He diffusivity are investigated. Helium diffusivity is found to decrease with increasing total damage and decreasing damage rate. Arrhenius plots show strongly increased helium diffusivity at high temperatures, high total implantation, and low implantation rates due to decreased vacancy and vacancy cluster concentrations. At low temperatures, effective diffusivity is weakly dependent on foil thickness while at high temperatures, narrower foils prevent defect accumulation by releasing all defects at the free surfaces. Helium to DPA ratio is not shown to strongly change helium diffusivity in the range of irradiation conditions simulated. Frenkel pair implantation is shown to cause higher effective diffusivity and more complex diffusion mechanisms than cascade implantation. The results of these simulations indicate that the differences in damage rates between implantation experiments and fission or fusion environments may result in differences in the final microstructure.
