David Hurley, Ph.D.

Directorate Fellow

Research Areas:
Materials Characterization

Biography:
David Hurley received a Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from Johns Hopkins University and is currently a Directorate Fellow at Idaho National Laboratory. Dr. Hurley has authored over 50 peer-reviewed publications involving theoretical and experimental studies of laser-based characterization of materials. Since coming to INL, he has focused on characterizing material behavior in extreme environments. Dr. Hurley’s research background and expertise encompass elements of physics, mechanical engineering and materials science. This middle ground between science and engineering has given him a unique perspective on many materials issues facing the nuclear industry. Connecting microstructure to mechanical properties of nuclear fuel provides an important example of this perspective. As part of this effort his group at INL contributed significantly to the foundation of a new field of mechanical characterization termed laser resonant ultrasonic spectroscopy. On the science side he served as experimental coordinator and executive board member for the Center for Materials Science of Nuclear Fuel. This Energy Frontier Research Center was focused on development of a first-principles understanding of the effect of irradiation-induced defects on thermal transport in oxide nuclear fuels. One of his more notable accomplishments within the CMSNF was leading a team that isolated thermal transport signatures of specific microstructural features. Examples include the first measurement of the Kapitza resistance of a bicrystal boundary and the identification of a cooperative effect between oxygen vacancies and grain boundaries in oxide fuel.
