DOE awards UW-Madison engineers $5.6 million for future reactor technology via University of Wisconsin-Madison News

The U.S. Department of Energy Nuclear Energy University Program awarded five out of 51 grants nationwide to University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers in the Department of Engineering Physics.

In total, the DOE awarded $39 million in research grants aimed at developing cutting-edge nuclear energy technologies and training and educating the next generation of leaders in the U.S. nuclear industry.

With a $1,055,456 grant, Izabela Szlufarska, an associate professor of materials science and engineering and engineering physics, will study the effects of radiation on fission product transport in silicon carbide. Nuclear fission products are the atomic fragments left after a large atomic nucleus fissions. Silicon carbide is currently used to coat fuel particles in very high-temperature reactor applications.
