Reactor Materials Testing Laboratory

The Reactor Materials Testing Laboratory (RMTL) is an exciting research endeavor for the Queen's Nuclear Materials Group. It uses a proton accelerator to introduce damage into materials at a microscopic scale. By studying the effects of this damage on the way that materials behave we can gain insight into, and draw parallels with, the way that materials are damaged within a nuclear reactor. The facility has been funded with a grant from CFI/MEDT, and support from Queen's and the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science.
