This article discusses the nature of radiation defects in graphite, reviewing past and recent developments in understanding their structure, interactions and effect on physical properties. The principal focus is on behaviour at the atomic and microstructural level, with an interest both in understanding graphite moderator damage in nuclear reactors and building a foundation for the range of emerging technological applications of defect-engineered graphitic materials. It is hoped that this article will both clarify the picture that has emerged over the last 50 years and provide a useful background to ongoing efforts.
