Turning Down the Heat

Researchers at the Center for Thermal Energy Transport under Irradiation are working towards uncovering a new paradigm for predicting and ultimately controlling the flow of heat in materials with evolving microstructure. By turning down the heat, their findings can pave the way for the next-generation of efficient, safe and economical nuclear reactors, as well as support new fossil-free clean energy technologies.
