Overview of current reactor design and structural materials
by Prof. Anton Möslang
Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany
Prof. Dr. Anton Möslang is head of the Institute for Applied Materials – Applied Materials Physics at KIT Karlsruhe since 2011 and is lecturing at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering since 2005. 1996 he became elected member of the Scientific Technical Advisory Board of FZK Karlsruhe and in 2009 of the KIT Senate. Prior to 2011, he had leading roles in the development of the “International Fusion Materials Irradiation Facility, IFMIF”, and was member of several advisory boards of large-scale infrastructures, European research organizations and in the organization of international conference series. In 1984, he obtained a PhD at the University of Konstanz in the field Solid State Physics with nuclear methods. Presently Anton Möslang is mainly responsible for the development and qualification of neutron tolerant and high temperature resistant advanced structural materials, mostly for nuclear fission and fusion but also for other carbon dioxide free applications with modern methods of the materials science.
Fundamentals of Radiation Effects in Materials
by Prof. Steven J. Zinkle
University of Tennessee
Dr. Zinkle is a UTK/ORNL Governor’s Chair Professor in the Nuclear Engineering and Materials Science & Engineering Departments at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK), with a joint appointment at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Prior to 2013, he served in a variety of management and technical R&D roles at ORNL including Chief Scientist of the Nuclear Science and Engineering Directorate, director of the Materials Science and Technology Division, and ORNL Corporate Fellow. Much of his research has utilized materials science to explore fundamental physical phenomena that are important for advanced nuclear energy applications, focusing on microstructure-property relationships. He received his PhD in Nuclear Engineering and an MS in Materials Science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1985. He has written over 260 peer-reviewed publications, and is a fellow of the American Nuclear Society, TMS (The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society), ASM International, the American Ceramic Society, the Materials Research Society, the American Physical Society, and AAAS. He is a member of the US National Academy of Engineering.
ITER Plasma-Facing Components, materials, design and manufacturing technologies
by Dr. Takeshi Hirai
Dr Hirai is currently working in the Divertor section at the ITER Organization since 2008 and he is in charge of procurement of the ITER Divertor vertical target as well he led the full-tungsten ITER Divertor design activity as the task force leader at the ITER Organization. He was involved in tokamak plasma exposure experiments, high heat flux testing and characterization of plasma-facing components and materials at Jülich research centre, Germany. During this appointment (2000-2008), he led the JET bulk tungsten Divertor design activity as the technical coordinator; furthermore, he was also involved in European DEMO Divertor design activity. He obtained doctor degree of engineering from Kyushu University Japan in 2000. He has been working extensively in the international fusion community for around 20 years and he published over one hundred peer-reviewed publications on high heat flux and particle exposure tests, and component design.
