Nuclear Applications for Ultra-High Temperature Ceramics and MAX Phases

Abstract : This chapter begins with a brief presentation of future nuclear reactors. Next, current uses of ceramics in the nuclear industry are reviewed, which, with the exception of graphite moderators and B4C control rods, rely largely on oxides or silicates. Then, the potential for using non-oxide Ultra-High Temperature Ceramics (UHTCs) and MAX phases in future (so-called Generation IV) fission and fusion reactors is discussed.
