The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced numerous accomplishments coming out of a multi-year collaboration in the area of advanced materials research between the United States and the United Kingdom. Dr. Bimal Kad (SE Researcher), along with researchers from the DOE Office of Fossil Energy, the United Kingdom's Department of Energy and Climate Change, and other representatives from academia and industry. This group has been collaborating over the past five years in an attempt to develop a better understanding of advanced materials, a key prerequisite to achieving the targets of any future energy policy.
"The success of the U.S.-U.K. collaboration demonstrates the power of international cooperation in energy research and development," said Dr. Victor K. Der, Acting Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy (DOE). "Sharing data, facilities, and experiences has accelerated the development of high-temperature materials solutions, paving the way for advanced coal power generation." Dr. Kad, the PI for UCSD, is collaborating on this project in the area of "Advanced Materials: Oxide Dispersion-Strengthened Alloys."
