Testing radiation resistance without using a nuclear reactor

Press/Media: Other

Description

Physicist Matheus Tunes is completing his doctoral studies at Huddersfield, supervised by Miami's Professor Stephen Donnelly and Dr. Jonathan Hinks, having previously graduated from the University of São Paulo (USP) – the major institution of higher learning and research in Brazil. This has helped establish a burgeoning connection between the UK and Brazilian universities.

The tests at Miami showed that titanium nitride is not a suitable material for coating nuclear fuel. But the new article tells how doctoral researcher Matheus Tunes is using the transmission electron microscopy facilities at Huddersfield to analyse other  that have promise in the field of radiation damage protection. These include high entropy alloys and MAX phases (metals with carbon and silicon).

    DescriptionOne candidate was titanium nitride and this was tested at the Miami facility by Matheus Tunes, Osmane Camara, Dr Graeme Greaves and São Paulo doctoral researcher Felipe Carneiro, who is supervised by Professor Schön. The USP journal article describes how the facilities at Huddersfield enabled the radiation resistance of titanium nitride to be tested in a transmission electron microscope coupled to a particle accelerator.
