Journal of Nuclear Materials

The Journal of Nuclear Materials publishes high quality papers in materials research for nuclear applications, primarily fission reactors, fusion reactors, and similar environments including radiation areas of charged particle accelerators. Both original research and critical review papers covering experimental, theoretical, and   computational aspects of either fundamental or applied nature are welcome.

The breadth of the field is such that a wide range of processes and properties in the field of materials science and engineering is of interest to the readership, spanning atom-scale processes, microstructures, thermodynamics, mechanical properties, physical properties, and corrosion, for example.

Proceedings from NuMat 2018

All accepted abstracts of registered attendees at the conference will be invited to submit a full paper to be published in Materials Today: Proceedings. There will also be a special issue in the Journal of Nuclear Materials that will consist of selected presentations from the conference.

If attendees prefer to publish their output from the conference in a related Elsevier publication, we ask that they include an acknowledgement in their paper stating that the work was originally presented at NuMat 2018. We will endeavor to collect together all of the output from the conference into a virtual special issue.

Nuclear Materials and energy

The open-access journal Nuclear Materials and Energy is devoted to the growing field of research for material application in the production of nuclear energy. Nuclear Materials and Energy is supported scientifically by the Max-Planck-Institut für Plasmaphysik, Garching, Germany.

The scientific support by the Max-Planck Institut für Plasmaphysik also underlines its contribution to the field of research on plasma-facing materials and specifies the scientific scope of the Journal. The emphasis will be on materials employed in reactors where they are exposed to extreme environments in terms of radiation, temperature and corrosive conditions.
