Fuel vendor audits
06 October, 2010
The current goal of zero fuel failures requires meticulous quality control (QC) and quality assurance (QA) of fuel design, fabrication and fuel operation.

The lack of such selectivity is a big concern in the nuclear industry, such as in the separation of radioactive cobaltous ions from vastly more plentiful ferrous ions. This is one area where imprinting technology holds particular promise. By Anupkumar Bhaskarapillai, Narasimhan V Sevilimedu and Börje Sellergren
