Short description: Friday Lecture by Andrey Chuvilin (Nanoscience research center CIC nanoGUNE, San Sebastián, Basque Country, Spain)

We are developing the methodology to apply the formalism and approaches of the classical chemical kinetics for the quantitative description of atomistic processes observable in the electron microscope. A proper statistical treatment of the data obtained in a range of experimental conditions allows determining the threshold energies for radiation induced reactions. But not only that: we show that thermal activation energy for reactions of individual defects can be estimated as well.
