Nickel-Graphene Nanocomposite As Irradiation-Tolerant Material For Gen-IV Reactors: A New Vision

In the past few decades, the contradiction between global climate change and the need to provide sufficient electricity for a growing global population has rekindled global interest in nuclear power. Gen-IV reactors, because of their safer, longer-lasting, proliferation-resistant, and economically viable characteristics, provide an excellent path for solving the contradiction and have attracted amounts of R&D investment from many countries. For example, the Chinese Academy of Sciences has announced plans to invest $3 billion over the next two decades in...
