Online monitoring capabilities for harsh environments

3105 Etcheverry Hall 3105 Etcheverry Hall, Berkeley, CA

Shirmir D. Branch Chemist, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory Abstract: The application of online monitoring to harsh environments, such as nuclear waste streams or molten salt reactors, presents the potential to enhance fundamental processes while significantly reducing operation cost, risk, and time. Optical spectroscopy as an online monitoring tool serves as a rapid, non- destructive method

The SPARC Toroidal Field Model Coil and the high-field path to fusion energy

Zach Hartwig The Robert N. Noyce Career Development Professor and Associate Professor of Nuclear Science and Engineering Abstract: Recent advances in high field superconducting magnet technology have opened a pathway to achieving fusion energy on accelerated timescales that could enable fusion to play a role in combating global climate change. This talk will give an overview

Multi-scale multi-physics requirements for space reactors

3105 Etcheverry Hall 3105 Etcheverry Hall, Berkeley, CA

Vedant K. Mehta, Ph.D. R&D Engineer Abstract: Next-gen small nuclear reactors or microreactors are gaining significant attention due to their utilization extending to civilian, military, and space applications. A few of the unique features that distinguish these reactors from current fleet of commercial power plant reactors is their use of high-assay low enriched uranium (HALEU) fuel, newer
