Nuclear researchers receive more than $2M from DOE for R&D

Several engineering physics researchers have received Department of Energy Nuclear Energy University Program grants totalling $2.2 million for projects to improve a nuclear fuel cycle simulator, study materials for corrosion resistance in the supercritical carbon-dioxide Brayton cycle, and evaluate alloys and ceramics for use in advanced liquid metal reactors. UW-Madison also is a partner in a $5 million, University of Michigan-led DOE Integrated Research Project to simulate neutron damage in advanced reactor materials with high-dose exposures.

Engineering Physics Professor Paul Wilson, Wisconisn Distinguished Professor Michael Corradini, Distinguished Research Professor Kumar Sridharan and Research Professor Mark Anderson are leading the UW-Madison efforts.
