Materials Challenges for Nuclear Fission

This one-day event examines the physics of the materials used in the nuclear fission process. It will follow the life-cycle – reactors, fuels, and waste – to unpack the physics challenges facing the life extension question for current reactors, the demands of materials for future reactors, and what characteristics long-term storage materials need to exhibit.


The event is been held on Monday 26 November 2012 at The Institute of Physics, 76 Portland Place, London, W1B 1NT
