Advanced Nuclear Materials
The next generation of reactor technology, whether fission or fusion, requires advanced materials capable of tolerating extremes in temperature, pressure, corrosion and radiation. The group at Sheffield is working on advances accident tolerant reactor fuel, and the next generation of fuel understanding the effects of radiation damage and fission gas bubble formation on stability. At the same time the group is focused on manufacturing next generation materials using advanced techniques such as additive layer manufacturing, spark-plasma synthesis and others. The combined aim is the development of new materials from initiation to manufacture.
