Accelerating materials development to advance clean energy production

A group of University of Wisconsin-Madison researchers has received a $1.8 million grant to develop new materials for multiple uses, including the ability to withstand the corrosive environment within a molten salt nuclear reactor.

The group, led by Adrien Couet, an assistant professor of engineering physics at UW-Madison, earned the three-year grant from the Advanced Research Project Agency-Energy, a U.S. Department of Energy agency created to identify and fund promising research that has the potential to disrupt or transform energy technology.  Read the full article here.
