The review article “Thermodynamics of hydrogen in graphite at high temperature and the effects of oxidation, irradiation and isotopics” by L. Vergari and R. O. Scarlat, published in the Journal of Nuclear Materials, has been selected as the Best Paper in Material Chemistry in 2020 by the Nuclear Engineering Department at UC Berkeley. The […]
L. 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 the talk, Vergari reviewed the high-temperature interaction between graphite and hydrogen isotopes and their relevance to tritium management in nuclear reactors.
S. Mastromarino and L. Vergari have presented two posters at the Nuclear Materials Conference (NuMat) 2020. Mastromarino’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. Vergari 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. Williams will deliver a presentation on the quantification and chemical characterization of oxide-containing species in molten halide salts. Mastromarino will discuss digestion systems for elemental analysis of fluoride salts. Vergari will give […]
