  • Andrews, Nathan Christopher (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This work addresses several specific knowledge gaps that exist in the use of alternative fuel and cladding combinations in a pressurized water reactor (PWR) environment. In the switch from a UO2 with zirconium-based cladding ...
  • Gao, Chi, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The high resolution X-ray spectrometer with spatial resolution (HiReX-Sr) is intensively used in the studies of impurity, momentum and energy transport in Alcator C-Mod. This thesis investigates three phenomena using ...
  • Hirose, Masashi, Ph. D. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    The precise control of a system which behaves according to the principles of quantum mechanics is an essential task in order to fully harness the unique properties of quantum mechanics, such as superposition and entanglement, ...
  • Jarvis, Jennifer Anne (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    Corrosion and hydrogen pickup of zirconium alloy fuel cladding in water cooled nuclear reactors are life-limiting phenomena for fuel. This thesis studies the fate of hydrogen liberated by waterside corrosion of Zircaloy-4 ...
  • O'Day, Buckley E (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2015)
    This research demonstrates that multiple mono-energetic gamma lines produced from low threshold, high-Q nuclear reactions can be used to detect the presence of high-Z material shielded in low- and medium-Z cargo. Specifically, ...
