Interaction Between Metal Fission Products And Triso Coating Materials, Clemens Heske
Fuels Campaign (TRP)
This project focuses on the chemical bonding and interface formation of metal fission products with the coating materials used in tri-isotropic (TRISO) fuel particles for gas-cooled reactors. By combining surface- and bulk-sensitive spectroscopic methods, intermediate chemical phases at the interface, intermixing/ diffusion behavior, and the electronic interface structure as a function of material (metal and coating materials) and temperature are examined.
In the past year, emphasis was placed on a detailed analysis and description of the Cs/SiC interface formation process.
