Recent work at Uppsala University


Uppsala University has developed neutron absorbing components made with boron carbide/plastic composite. These can be 3-D printed to make a range of products.  The technology developments, for example, described in the paper Anders Olsson, Maja S. Hellsing, Adrian R. Rennie 'New possibilities using additive manufacturing with materials that are difficult to process and with complex structures' Physica Scripta 92, (2017), 053002, are now exploited by a start-up company Additive Composite Uppsala AB established this year.  A successful delivery of components has already been made to the European Spallation Source (ESS).
