Production and Hot Hydrogen Testing of Molybdenum Matrix Cermet Fuels for NTP

Active Technology Project

Project Introduction

Production and Hot Hydrogen Testing of Molybdenum Matrix Cermet Fuels for NTP
Through this CIF project, molybdenum (Mo) matrix cermets will be produced via an innovative direct current consolidation technique and hot hydrogen tested using surrogate materials in place of the uranium dioxide (UO2) particles. The objective of this CIF is to identify the maximum use temperature and characterize fuel system behavior under steady state and thermal cycling conditions for low absorbing Mo matrix fuels as an alternative to tungsten (W).
