US Department of Energy National Science Bowl

Back to EurekAlert! A Service of the American Association for the Advancement of Science



The INL is a science-based, applied engineering national laboratory dedicated to supporting the U.S. Department of Energy's missions in nuclear and energy research, science, and national defense. The INL is operated for the Department of Energy (DOE) by Battelle Energy Alliance (BEA) and partners, each providing unique educational, management, research and scientific assets into a world-class national laboratory.

Our mission today. We continue to tackle complex missions for the nation in a safe and cost-effective manner, including: Delivering science-based engineered solutions to challenges in the Department of Energy's mission areas And enhancing the INL's scientific and technical talent, facilities and equipment to best serve the nation.

Junior researchers showing world the way to advanced nuclear fuel design

Two early-career Idaho National Laboratory researchers are earning international attention for their groundbreaking work. They're getting a long-sought look into the 3-D microstructure of irradiated nuclear fuel, then feeding that data into cutting-edge fuel behavior models. Their work will make the design and testing of even safer nuclear fuels more informed and efficient.
