Identification of Pd-Si Compounds in Diffusion Couple Studies to Complement AGR PIE reports
Palladium (Pd) and silver (Ag) are known fission products of TRISO particle nuclear fuels . Pd is known to corrode the silicon carbide (SiC) layer of a TRISO particle, which can compromise the overall fuel performance ...
Fabrication of mini UB2 ingots via Arc melt synthesis using a customized copper hearth
As growing efforts take place to enhance the operational safety of nuclear reactors, fuel composites have been explored as replacement to the traditionally used Uranium dioxide (UO2). One potential candidate that has been ...
Probe Beam Deflection Technique as a Characterization Method for Nuclear Materials
Probe beam deflection technique (PBDT) was evaluated as a potential method of characterization for both radioactive and non radioactive materials. This method was chosen for its non destructive nature. The analyte of ...
