Researchers Discover The Cause Of Irradiation-Induced Instability In Materials Surfaces
Key insight may help nuclear industry advance clean fusion power A new discovery about the dynamic impact of individual energetic particles into a solid surface improves our ability to predict surface stability or instability of materials under irradiation over time. The finding may lead to the design of improved structural materials for nuclear fission and fusion power plants, which must …
