Studying PhD of design of novel interlayers in W-W diffusion-bonded joints for large nuclear shielding components applications at Cranfield University in the United Kingdom:
We need to develop materials that can withstand harsh environments to generate energy in nuclear fusion reactors. This is a fully funded course that trains multidisciplinary materials specialists to study and research in the field of integrated computational materials engineering.
What is very demanding about nuclear fusion reactors is their environment. For example, the fusion reaction between tritium and deuterium releases energy of about 16.6 MeV in plasma. This energy is subdivided between a charged helium nucleus and a high-energy neutron. On the other hand, neutron irradiation damages the HTSs in the reactor, resulting in a shield made of W material to protect the HTSs as well as thermal fatigue loads.
What’s challenging is the connection of the W shielding components, but there is still no effective way to do this. Throughout the course, students will seek to make an effective connection between the W components using a coating interlayer. The UKAEA will validate student activities throughout the project.
Students will enjoy a professional, focused, and dynamic environment and become part of the Cranfield Doctoral Network. The network is made up of research staff and students and provides a platform for researchers to collaborate in a multidisciplinary environment and share their ideas. The purpose of forming the network is to encourage a dynamic and effective research culture based on knowledge and diversity of activities. The transferable skills curriculum, along with a dedicated program of events and seminars, provides students with the opportunity to network and gain social opportunities.
Admission requirements of doctoral degree in design of novel interlayers in W-W diffusion-bonded joints for large nuclear shielding components applications:
Applicants need a first or second class UK honours degree in Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science, or a related field. They are expected to be interested in industrial research, have excellent communication skills, and be self-motivated.
The course offers a bursary of up to £ 18,000/ per year for three years, and in addition to that, the amount of £ 20,000 is considered for materials and travel.
Language requirements of doctoral degree in design of novel interlayers in W-W diffusion-bonded joints for large nuclear shielding components applications:
To study the course, students must demonstrate their ability to communicate in English. They can apply for one of the Cranfield’s EAP courses, if they do not meet expectations of the English language arrival. The expiration date for the exams is only two years of the course start date. Combination of scores in two or more tests is not accepted, all elements of test results must be shown in one test. All test scores are checked with test providers. Applicants must have at least IELTS 7 (5.5 in all skill components), TOEFL IBT 100 (reading at least 18, listening at least 17, writing at least 17, speaking at least 20), Pearson PTE 68 (59 in all skill components), Cambridge Assessment English 190 (160 in all skill components), overall pass in Trinity College London, or overall pass in Language Cert (33 in all skill components).
