The development of suitable materials for molten salt reactors is a crucial part of advanced systems that are being explored as next-generation energy systems and heat storage systems.
ANSTO has been the global leader in supplying irradiated silicon for major electronic companies in the last seven years. Used all over the world in new technology, the demand is expected to increase in years to come.
Stress measurements using neutron diffraction at a number of institutions, including ANSTO, have supported investigations to determine how superalloys respond to thermal treatment and ageing. ANSTO's Prof. Anna Paradowska contribution to this paper was recently awarded the ASM International ASM Henry Marion Howe Medal in Metallurgical and Materials Transactions A.
In a world-first, an international research team, led by Monash University and ANSTO, has created an ultrathin porous membrane to completely separate potentially harmful ions, such as lead and mercury, from water.
