NEA issues call to action in report on nuclear cost reductions
A new report from the Paris-based OECD Nuclear Energy Agency declares that nuclear power is needed for countries to meet their Paris Agreement decarbonization and energy security policy goals, but that governmental support for a rapid reduction in the cost of new nuclear capacity through the creation of certain policy frameworks is likely necessary.

The effects of K-bubble dispersion and 3 wt.% Re addition on the tensile properties and their anisotropy in W were investigated in this work. K-doped W and K-doped W-3%Re showed ~45 and ~65% higher tensile strengths than pure W, respectively. The ultimate tensile strength and its temperature dependence in pure W, K-doped W, and K-doped W-3%Re showed anisotropy. However, the effects of K-bubble dispersion and 3% Re addition on the anisotropic tensile strength were not clearly observed. K-doped W and K-doped W-3%Re showed better deformation abilities than pure W. K-doped W-3%Re showed better tensile properties than pure W under non-irradiation conditions used in this work. Since irradiation hardening is suppressed by adding 3% Re, K-doped W-3%Re is expected to be more advantageous as a plasma facing material in a fusion reactor than pure W and K-doped W.
