Nuclear engineer receives $3.6 million in grants to improve reactors

9/29/2020

In nuclear fusion reactors, the nuclei of atoms fuse to generate more energy than is consumed. This energy-producing plasma is roughly the temperature of the sun, which is powered by the same fusion energy principles. The sun, however, does not need to be confined in the way fusion plasma requires on Earth.

About

The Ken and Mary Alice Lindquist Department of Nuclear Engineering at Penn State is one of the top ranked nuclear engineering programs in the United States. The department distinguishes itself with a strong focus on experimental research. The actively growing department leads four educational programs for students pursuing a bachelor of science, a master of science, a master of engineering, or a doctoral degree. The Radiation Science and Engineering Center (RSEC) facilities, including the Breazeale Reactor, are available to nuclear engineering faculty and students at Penn State for research and instruction. RSEC houses the Breazeale Nuclear Reactor, the country’s first and longest operating licensed nuclear research reactor. Having access to an operating research reactor is a key strength for the department and enables Penn State to harness research and educational opportunities that are unique in the United States.
