Cracking graphite to help extend life of nuclear power stations

by Nicola Temple | July 29, 2015

Researchers at Bristol’s Interface Analysis Centre (IAC) in the School of Physics, adopted advanced materials analysis techniques to investigate how graphite used in reactor cores degrades during normal reactor operation. Their insights helped extend the lifespan of two nuclear power reactors, resulting in substantial financial and environmental benefits.
