- Materials testing and characterisation
- Small-scale sample testing
- Design codes and standards for fusion
- Application specific material selection
- Developing novel materials capable of withstanding the extreme environments of a fusion reactor, often in conjunction with one another:
- High load and temperature extremes
- High energy neutrons
- Extreme magnetic forces
- Corrosive decay caused by lithium
- Performing fusion design criteria validation testing
Other industrial applications
- Investigating cutting edge materials
- Developing supply chains
- Advanced testing techniques and technique standardisation
The Materials Technology Laboratory is keen to collaborate on research projects that relate to these areas. We will also consider commercial use of our unique capabilities to support UK industry and academia towards the advancement of fusion and related technologies.
