Lorenzo Vergari has been awarded the Young Researcher Award at the Asia-Pacific Symposium on Tritium Science (APSOT-3), organized by the University of Toyama, Japan. In his talk, Lorenzo reviewed the high-temperature interaction between graphite and hydrogen isotopes and their relevance to tritium management in nuclear reactors.
Sara Mastromarino and Lorenzo Vergari have presented two posters at the Nuclear Materials Conference (NuMat) 2020. Sara’s poster is entitled “Measurements and Uncertainty Quantification for the Density and Coefficient of Thermal Expansion of Molten 2LiF-BeF2 (FLiBe)” and is co-authored by R. Vidrio and Dr. R. Scarlat. Lorenzo has presented a poster named “Chemical modifications of […]
Our group is excited to welcome to Berkeley its newest members, first year PhD students Sasha Kennedy, Malachi Nelson and Ryan Hayes. Looking forward to working together! Go Bears!
We will present some of our most recent and exciting research at the American Chemical Society Fall 2020 National Meeting, held August 17-20. Haley Williams will deliver a presentation on the quantification and chemical characterization of oxide-containing species in molten halide salts. Sara Mastromarino will discuss digestion systems for elemental analysis of fluoride salts. Lorenzo […]
