Jean-Luc Béchade is head of Material Microstructural Analysis Laboratory in the Department for Nuclear Materials at CEA Saclay.
He is professor-researcher at INSTN and associate-professor in materials science. He is Senior Expert in materials science and more precisely for nuclear materials with the specialty: metallurgy of Zirconium alloys, determination of microstructure with advanced characterization techniques.
Jean-Christophe Brachet, PhD, is Senior Expert on nuclear materials and professor at INSTN. His expertise covers in particular physical metallurgy of chromium rich ferritic-martensitic steels and zirconium alloys (development of “new” alloys, behavior in LOCA accidental conditions...).
He has authored more than 50 publications and participated to numerous international symposiums or workshops as lecturer or as chairman of specific sessions. He is inventor or co-inventor of 5 patents.
Frederico Garrido is “Chargé de Recherche” at the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and at the University of Paris-Sud, Orsay.
He is expert in radiation damage physics, especially applied to nuclear ceramic materials used as transmutation matrices (oxides and carbides). He has authored more than 100 publications.
