APT study of radiation-induced segregation ferritic/martensitic steels after irradiation with high-energy protons and spallation neutrons

3105 Etcheverry Hall 3105 Etcheverry Hall, Berkeley, CA

Yong Dai Laboratory for Nuclear Materials, Paul Scherrer Institute, Switzerland Abstract: Ferritic/martensitic (FM) and ODS steels have been extensively studied in various fission and fusion material R&D projects around the world. These steels are also candidate structural materials for high power spallation targets. Over the past two decades, a large number FM and ODS steels

Emerging Applications in Materials Science and Advanced Manufacturing at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

3105 Etcheverry Hall 3105 Etcheverry Hall, Berkeley, CA

Manyalibo J. Matthews, Ph.D. Division Leader, Materials Science Division Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory Abstract: The demanding and ever-evolving missions of the Department of Energy call for increased responsiveness to the mission 'pull' while staying on the cutting edge of scientific advancements and anticipating programmatic needs through a technological 'push.' In this talk I will give

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

Advanced Surveillance: Assessing Radiation–Induced Effects in RPV Materials

4101 Etcheverry Hall

Dr. Inge Uytdenhouwen Abstract: To monitor the degradation of nuclear reactor pressure vessel materialsinduced by neutron irradiation; dedicated surveillance programs are in place. Goal of these programs is to evaluate the effect of neutron irradiation on the mechanical properties ahead of time compared to the real degradation of the reactor pressure vessel. Here the so
