Dr Michael Rushton has had his latest article published in Nature Index. The article is titled “Exploring small nuclear to plug the energy gaps” and can be found in the 2022 Nature Energy Index. The journal focusses on how the global energy crisis lends urgency to many nations’ plans to decarbonise, shifting from fossil fuels to greener options.
The Bangor University Lead Loop for Erosion/corrosion Testing (BULLET) has been delivered to Bangor University, M-SParc, by SRS in Italy this week. BULLET will test materials in flowing, high temperature lead (Pb).
Novel magnetoacoustic phenomena have been discovered in recent years, such as acoustic spin pumping and magnetization switching induced by sound waves, with potential technological applications in spintronics and magnetic recording.
The Nuclear Futures Institute is pleased to highlight the publication of a recent research paper written by Dr Phylis Makurunje and Dr Simon Middleburgh. The paper is titled “Self-contained dual-scale composite architectures in spray dried zirconium diboride” and was published in the Ceramics International journal.
Christopher Moore, a 2nd year PhD student with the Nuclear Futures Institute has published a paper titled “Hydrogen accommodation in the TiZrNbHfTa high entropy alloy”. High entropy alloys and their hydrides are a new type of material and this paper works to provide a better understanding of how these systems behave at the atomic level. Read more at https://nubu.nu
The Nuclear Futures Institute are pleased to highlight the publication of a new research paper written by Dr Alberto Fraile. The paper is titled “Analysis of hypervelocity impacts: the tungsten case". The impact simulations were performed using classical MDs (molecular dynamics) as implemented in LAMMPS.
The Nuclear Academics Meeting 2021, provided a forum for academics working on nuclear energy-related research, from new build through to decommissioning of existing reactors to discuss topics of common interest. The…
