Title: Nuclear Technology Research and Development (NTRD) Technical Monthly November FY18

Abstract

Single crystals of U 3Si 2 were grown at various crystal rotation and pull rates to establish the best parameters for growth of crystals with diameters ≥5 mm (Figure 1). Crystals were pulled from the melt using a modified Czochralski method. U 3Si 2 single crystals will enable more fundamental property studies for this proposed high density fuel providing data to develop and inform physics-based fuel performance models. (D. Byler)
