Generation IV Reactor Technologies Links and Resources

   I have worked on safety and materials issues relating to three major interlinked thematic areas: the Supercritical Water-cooled Reactor (SCWR); the Very High Temperature Reactor (VHTR), and Nuclear Hydrogen Production (NHP). In addition, I have also worked on similar issues related to Fusion (which some have called a Generation V technology). Below you will find links to my published work in these areas, as well as to resources in the wider webspace.
