Biography

Since joining the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in 1974, Dr. Kurtz has worked in several areas within materials science, specializing in the deformation and fracture of metals and alloys for nuclear power plant applications. In his early career Dr. Kurtz was involved in evaluating the reliability and effectiveness of nondestructive inspection techniques for assessing the structural integrity of nuclear power reactor pressure retaining components.

Presently Dr. Kurtz leads a multidisciplinary effort to develop advanced, low-activation materials for first-wall/blanket structural elements of fusion power systems. Dr. Kurtz coordinates and contributes in several areas including alloy development, performance of irradiation experiments, post-irradiation evaluation of mechanical properties and microstructure, and computer simulations to model damage evolution due to neutron irradiation.

Dr. Kurtz's personal research interests include the effects of radiation on the microstructure and properties of metals, ceramics, and ceramic composites; computational modeling of interfaces in crystalline solids and the effects radiation; mechanical behavior of structural materials in hostile service environments; and creep mechanisms of refractory metals and alloys.
