Join NE for light refreshments and a presentation by Dr. Robert C. O’Brien.
The commercial nuclear power industry is faced with the need to improve the fuel cycle economy while continuing to improve the safety and performance of nuclear fuels. Similarly, emerging opportunities for the use of nuclear energy across a diverse group of applications require adaptation of nuclear fuels and material systems that are suitable for use within advanced reactor concepts while providing suitable safety margins. An overview of applications and methodology of advanced fuel fabrication approaches will be presented in response to these needs.
