  • Salt for the Earth

    June 14, 2019

    The Molten Salts in Extreme Environments Energy Frontier Research Center's mission is to study the fundamental properties of molten salts so that they can be used in molten salt nuclear reactors, which will be safer, more efficient and modular, providing a sustainable source of power. Our team consists of six institutions that excel in X-ray and neutron science, in working with actinides, in working under extreme conditions, and performing computer simulations of molten salts and their interactions with materials.
