Research

The Materials for eXtreme Environments group covers material science research into alloys to be used in high temperature conditions. These includes applications in:

  • Nuclear fusion, with tungsten alloys
  • Generation IV nuclear fission, with zirconium alloys
  • Jet engine turbine blades, with titanium superalloys
  • Concentrated solar power, with chromium alloys

You can learn a bit more about those different class of alloys and the research projects associated in the different pages of this section.
