Michel Fluss is an experimentalist who has a wide ranging professional history in nuclear science and applying nuclear science-based techniques to materials challenges. He is the author of over 210 peer reviewed publications, several book chapters on radiation damage accumulation, and a recognized expert in ion-beam and materials experiments. One fifty-year-old question intrigues Dr. Fluss—how to connect very high dose-rate ion-beam experiments to what would happen to engineering-materials in an actual fission or fusion engine at much lower neutron dose rates. Dr. Fluss joined the Hosemann group at UC Berkeley with the specific goal of solving this fifty-year-old question with regards to the damage accumulation phenomena of bias-driven swelling and to pave the way for rapid engineering relevant testing of nuclear materials with ion-beams.
Solid State Physics of Radiation Damage Accumulation
Dr Fluss holds a Ph.D. in Nuclear Chemistry/Physics from Columbia University (1964). He enjoys helping and mentoring students and is always ready to share his research experience with them on their way to conducting their thesis projects.
