The New Yorker featured Brian Wirth, UT-Oak Ridge National Laboratory Governor’s Chair for Computational Nuclear Engineering, in an article entitled
Power from nuclear fusion reactors has the promise to be safe, sustainable, and limitless. But science has not been able to bring fusion energy to the commercial energy market. This is partly because the operating limits of the reactor materials are not known. A team of researchers at UT Knoxville and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, in collaboration with seven other institutions, is trying to solve this challenge.
Honors and awards for UT Knoxville faculty and graduate students.
