About this book

This book looks at Generation IV (GEN IV) nuclear reactor design and the technology known as nuclear micro reactors that is currently under development. Coverage includes the advantages of nuclear micro reactor applications as sources of renewable energy, their use in military applications and Department of Defense requirements, and the nuclear industry‚Äôs trend toward the design of small and micro reactors. Nuclear micro reactor safety, security issues, and cost concerns are also explored. The book will provide scientists, engineers, and students with valuable guidance on the fundamentals needed to understand the research and development of the next generation of nuclear technologies.

About the authors

Dr. Bahman Zohuri is currently an Associate Research Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of New Mexico, and founder of Galaxy Advanced Engineering, Inc. (GEI). Dr. Zohuri started GEI after many years in the semiconductor and defense industries as a Senior Process Engineer for corporations including Westinghouse and Intel, and then as Senior Chief Scientist at Lockheed Missile and Aerospace Corporation. While at Lockheed, he was responsible for the study of vulnerability, survivability, and component radiation and laser hardening for Defense Support Program (DSP), Boost Surveillance and Tracking Satellites (BSTS), and Space Surveillance and Tracking Satellites (SSTS). He also performed analysis of characteristics of laser beam and nuclear radiation interaction with materials, Transient Radiation Effects in Electronics (TREE), Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP), System Generated Electromagnetic Pulse (SGEMP), Single-Event Upset (SEU), Blast and, Thermo-mechanical, hardness assurance, maintenance, and device technology. His consultancy clients have included Sandia National Laboratories, and he holds patents in areas such as the design of diffusion furnaces, and Laser Activated Radioactive Decay. Dr. Zohuri earned his Doctorate in Nuclear Engineering from the University of New Mexico. He is the author of several books on nuclear energy and directed energy weapons.
