U.S. reactor technologies to be featured at IAEA conference
A virtual side event at the 64th General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency will spotlight U.S. reactor technologies. The free event, US Reactor Technologies: Flexible Energy Security for Real-World Challenges, will be held this Thursday, September 24, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. (EDT).
The event will highlight the capabilities of small modular reactors and other innovative reactors for addressing countries’ current needs. It will also examine anticipated challenges in the future, as well as underscore the need to act now.
The event is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Energy. Advanced registration is required.

The deuterium (D) permeation behavior for 1 displacement per atom Fe2+ damaged tungsten (W) was studied by the gas-driven permeation method and compared with undamaged W. The results of thermal desorption spectroscopy showed that dislocation loops and voids were formed in damaged W. It was found that the D permeation behavior in W was affected by irradiation defects. The effective diffusivity and permeability in the damaged W were lower than that in undamaged W. However, the difference in effective diffusivity and permeability between the undamaged sample and the damaged sample was reduced with increasing the heating temperature. Under 965 K, which was enough for D detrapping from voids, the permeability for damaged W was consistent with that for undamaged W.
