From table salt to nuclear energy
Nick ter Veer, a PhD student at the Delft University of Technology, has recently synthesized a promising thorium chloride salt, that can be used to fuel a new generation of nuclear reactors. Thorium has great potential, in combination with an uranium or plutonium based fuel, for a more sustainable nuclear fuel cycle, thereby producing less long lived radioactive waste. Together with the Reactor Physics & Nuclear Materials research team, he is now looking at this salt’s properties, to assess its suitability for use in the so-called Molten Salt Reactors.

NWO grant for a cost-effective power-generating solar window
In dit project zullen TU Delft, Physee en NSG-Pilkington een kosteneffectief energieopwekkend luminescerende coating voor ramen ontwikkelen op basis van het principe van een luminescente zonneconcentrator. Dit zal worden bereikt met nieuwe luminescerende materialen die uniform over het gehele zichtbare zonnespectrum kunnen absorberen, de geabsorbeerde energie opnieuw kunnen emitteren en transporteren naar zonnecellen.

New agreement signed between ISIS and TU Delft
ISIS and the Technical University of Delft signed a new agreement on the 4th of May 2023 for continued cooperation between the two institutions. ISIS and TU Delft have had a very long-standing partnership for the development of neutron instrumentation and technologies. In particular, TU Delft, supported by funds from the Netherlands science funding agency the NWO, have worked with ISIS for the design and construction of two ISIS Second Target Station instruments over the past 15 years: the Offspec reflectometer and the Larmor small angle scattering instrument.
