UF receives $1.8M from DOE’s Office of Nuclear Energy for R&D

Nuclear researchers in MSE (NE) have received Department of Energy University Program grants for conducting research to mitigate the Fuel Cladding Chemical Interactions (FCCI) in a sodium cooled fast reactor, and to develop BiI3 Gamma-Ray spectrometers for nuclear material safeguarding. UF is also a collaborator in a $1M, Argonne National Laboratory-led NEET research project to develop in-situ High Energy X-rays techniques for studying microstructure-property correlation in reactor materials.

Professors Juan Nino, Yong Yang, Simon Phillpot, James Baciak and Kelly Jordan are leading the UF efforts.
