Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and other institutions have developed a remote test that can produce key information about the condition of stainless-steel reactor components, minimising outage time. The findings are reported in the journal Acta Materiala in a paper by MIT professor of nuclear science and engineering Michael Short; Saleem Al Dajani (who did his master’s work at MIT on this project and is now a doctoral student at the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology in Saudi Arabia); and 13 others.
