The paper, titled “Characterization and Comparative Analysis of the Tensile Properties of Five Tempered Martensitic Steels and an Oxide Dispersion Strengthened Alloy Irradiated at ~295 C to 6.5 dpa,” appeared in Journal of Nuclear Materials in January 2016. Shane Cherry & Dale Christiansen lead a team of INL critical infrastructure analysts and geospatial development researchers who were recognized with a “Special Achievement in GIS” award from Esri International for outstanding work in applying geographic information systems to critical infrastructure protection planning and response tools in support of the Department of Homeland Security. The secure, web- based, geospatial mapping tools they have created support complex data analysis and enhanced situational and strategic awareness for the critical infrastructure community at the federal, state and local levels. Pioneering research in nuclear fuels The first full cross section of a metal fuel pin previously irradiated in the Fast Flux Test Facility was examined in the Electron Microscopy Laboratory scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and focused ion beam (FIB) systems, resulting in the first detailed microstructural characterization of this fuel, which was irradiated approximately 20 years ago.
