One graduate student worked in LANL from Nov. 8 to Dec. 21 to conduct the experiment. Test of the corrosion of different materials in LBE was performed. Delta loop experimental data analysis was performed to find the temperature response of the YSZ oxygen sensor under the hydrogen injection condition. We also started preliminary study on the pressure-electric silicon sensor. In the same time, progress has been made in the simulation for transport in oxygen mixing. We have one paper accepted for publication in International Journal of Heat and Mass Transfer, and another paper accepted for oral presentation by IEEE International Symposium of Circuits and Systems for the track Chemical Sensors. A manuscript regarding to the RGA analysis for the calibration of oxygen sensor is on the way. We graduated one M. Sc. Student, and his thesis is based on his work in this project.
