Tim Graening Seibert

Staff Research Associate

I am a materials scientist working in the field of fusion and fission materials. I received a Doctor of Engineering and Materials Science from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in 2017 for my work on austenitic ODS steels for fusion applications and worked afterward under the umbrella of EUROFusion delegated to ORNL on an ongoing irradiation campaign, where Eurofer steels were irradiated in HFIR at ORNL. I was hired in 2020 and since then, I have broadened my scope toward structural materials for fusion and fission.

Coated cladding concepts for AFC, CNA steels development and scale up, development of a required transition layer from tungsten to steel for plasma facing components and the outreach to connect industry and national laboratory are just a few of my ongoing projects.
