Swift heavy ions are used to replicate damage caused by fission fragments and alpha particles in nuclear materials.
Using ultrafast lasers, we can learn more about the physical mechanisms underlying the damage processes in nuclear materials.
Diamond anvil cells allow for in situ characterization of materials at high pressures.
