Update from ICSHM12 – Posters win Prizes

Writing about web page

It's been a while since the last entry as there has been a lot of action in the RDM group. The main event this spring has been the 12th International Conference on the Science of Hard Materials at Bentotta, Sri Lanka,

This conference covers aspects of hard materials and refractory materials in terms of processing, applications and fundamental research into hard materials. This conference is significant in that it is the first time there has been significant presence from the nuclear fusion community, particularly with respect to advances in the study and investigations of low-activation tungsten carbides for compact nuclear fusion reactors.

Our group presented two posters and one oral presentation in total: The oral presentation being on the state-of-the art of RSBs from 2016-2024 and the posters being (1) Depth profiles of stress as measured by ESBD from proton and gamma-irradiated cWC and (2) Low-activation joining of cWC to steel.

While there were many interesting talks particularly on processing methods, the low activation joining methods poster won the PhD poster prize. Certainly, low activation joining methods are highly important since it is critical to prove the utility of hard materials and compatibility with other reactor components.

So Congratulations to Joe Gillham for the winning poster!
