Matthew Denman, Ph.D.

Principal Engineer
Reliability Engineering Department
Kairos Power


Kairos Power is an advanced nuclear reactor company headquartered in Alameda, CA with a testing and manufacturing facility in Albuquerque, NM, and a licensing center in Charlotte, NC. The key to Kairos Power’s success lies in two areas: a simplified safety case that credits only the TRISO fuel and Flibe salt for safety-related radionuclide retention and a rapid iteration program focused on reducing cost-uncertainties in the final product.

This talk will focus on the simplified safety case and explains the process through which large safety margins are leveraged reduce the safety-related footprint of the reactor. This compact safety case will ensure that the design team has the flexibility they need when designing an economically competitive Fluoride Salt-Cooled High-Temperature Reactor.
