High-Value: Semiconductors - Program Focus

Measurement of DUO2 transistor properties at ORNL
Measurement of DUO2 transistor properties at ORNL
  • Program Focus
    • Semi-conductor research (Univ. Tennessee)
      • Identify best dopant
        • Working with LANL to test crystals implanted with various elements
      • Determine whether polycrystalline UO2 will suffice
        • Baseline approach for semiconductors is costly single crystals
