  • Tough nut that can withstand 600 degrees heat

    Fatal radiation, 600 degrees heat and a really exciting existence of several kilovolts. That's what KTH researchers' electronics have to cope with when they are used in such brutal environments such as in nuclear power plants and on oil rigs. SEK 24.2 million in research grants will help scientists to succeed.

One way of reducing costs is to ensure that the next generation of nuclear power plants are modular. This is according to Henryk Anglart, senior lecturer in nuclear technology at KTH.
