Taheri Receives Second Nuclear Grant

Professor Mitra Taheri, Hoeganaeas Assistant Professor of Metallurgy, has received a second grant for nuclear materials science as part of a team led by University of Michigan researchers, Drs. Anton Van der Ven (PI), Gary Was, and Lumin Wang. The total amount for the award is $996K with $200K coming to Drexel University.

Funded by the Nuclear Engineering University Program (NEUP) of the Department of Energy in the category of Generation IV, “Fission Product Transport in TRISO Particle Layers under Operating and Off-Normal Conditions,” hopes to determine the diffusivity and other behaviors of key fission products (Ag, Cs, I, Te, Eu and Sr) through PyC and SiC both thermally, under irradiation and under stress using fission products introduction techniques that avoid the pitfalls of past experiments.  

Professor Ulrike Wegst, Anne Stevens Assistant Professor, has also received funding under this same solicitation in the category of Fuel Cycle Research and Development.
