Advanced Materials

General Atomics has developed a variety of advanced materials for nuclear and other challenging applications. GA affiliates also supply uranium and related services.

Engineered SiC Composites
GA fabricates innovative silicon-carbide (SiC-SiC) composites in custom geometries with tailored performance to meet customer requirements.

High Neutron Reflector Materials
Advanced, high-performance fast reactors will strongly benefit from reflector materials that tolerate high temperatures and high neutron fluence. GA is developing Zr3Si2 to improve the neutron economy and reduce power peaking factors for these reactors.

Nuclear Fuels
GA's family of affiliates supplies uranium and related services to the commercial nuclear industry.
