Argonne is 5th Best Place to work for postdocs

Argonne a top place to work for postdocs in 2013
For the third year in a row, the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory is one of the 10 best places to work as a postdoctoral researcher, according to The Scientist magazine's annual survey. Argonne ranked fifth, moving up from sixth place last year, earning specific praise for its benefits and attention to personal and family life. More...

FUSION BLANKET AND SHIELD STUDIES
This activity is concerned with a general design evaluation of first wall/blanket/shield components of fusion reactors. Various combinations of blanket structural material/coolant/neutron multiplier/ tritium breeding material are being reviewed to develop a well-defined set of design criteria. Experimental and analytical activities on first-wall, blanket, and shield components are underway to develop design tools for reactor first-wall, blanket, and shield including neutronics, thermal hydraulics, structural mechanics, and blanket modules for testing in the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor (ITER).

FUSION BLANKET TECHNOLOGY TESTING
This research involves development and testing of fundamental technologies required for tritium breeding blankets. An important aspect of this effort for liquid metal blanket is the development of electrically insulating coatings on structural materials to mitigate magnetohydrodynamic effects associated with a flowing liquid metal in high magnetic fields. This activity includes development of ceramic breeding materials, neutron multiplier materials, tritium recovery from liquid and ceramic breeding materials and neutronic analysis of tritium breeding capability, activation and afterheat of irradiated materials, structural analyses of the blanket design, and shielding characteristics.
