Abstract

This project has four components:

  • The fabrication of a materials test apparatus with unique capabilities,
  • Comparative studies of steel corrosion under gas phase conditions comparable to the Lead Bismuth Eutectic (LBE) oxygen control conditions,
  • Isotope labeling studies, and
  • Collaborative efforts with other workers in the field.

Summary of accomplishments:

  • Started occupation of the High Temperature Materials Experimental Facility.
  • Presented a paper at the meeting of the American Chemical Society in San Diego in March 13-17.
  • Currently reviving the ion beam for implantation experiments.
  • Currently analyzing 38 steel samples from the DELTA loop from LANL.
