Post-Irradiation Examination of Molybdenum Rings and Discs Constraining Ultrahigh-Burnup Uranium Dioxide Fuel Discs
Molybdenum-based alloys are under investigation as a potential material for light water reactor fuel cladding to enhance the accident tolerance of nuclear fuel rods, but more data is needed on key alloy properties. This study examined five irradiated molybdenum samples and one unirradiated sample with a light optical microscope, scanning electron microscope, and other technologies.
EPRI Comments on a Study of Childhood Leukemia, Central Nervous System Cancers and Distance from Overhead Power Lines
U.S. researchers recently published a study that assesses the association between populations living near overhead power lines and childhood leukemia (“Childhood Leukemia and Distance to Power Lines in California: A Population-Based Control Study,” British Journal of Cancer). This EPRI report provides an overview of the study and discusses its strengths and limitations.
