Brochure title:
Radiation Effects in Materials Research 2016 Capability Briefing
Description:
At PNNL, we are striving to detect structural degradation in materials in extreme environments before structural defects occur
Clearance number:
PNNL-SA-118291
Contact/Custodian:
Patello, Gertrude K (gert.patello@pnnl.gov)
Date published:
June 2016
Number of pages:
100
Background information:
Revolutionary new materials are needed that can function reliably, for long periods of time, in environments marked by radiation, pressure, and elevated temperature. Few such materials exist. New materials are unlikely to be discovered rapidly using an Edisonian approach involving fabrication and characterization of literally thousands of material microstructures of systematically varied compositions and phases. Such an approach is too slow and costly to meet the demands of the energy, national security, and environmental remediation sectors.
