<Lab Name>
Our new simultaneous corrosion/irradiation facility for molten salt and liquid lead experiments. Using this, we can study how high dose irradiation changes corrosion rates and mechanisms in advanced nuclear reactors. These reactors promise to be far safer and more economical than the current ones, but can only be built once corrosion issues are understood and solved. This new kit takes us a big step in that direction.
