Research Areas: Characterization Systems and Services
Biography: Arnold W. Erickson is a principal engineer and scientist at Idaho National Laboratory whose recent work has involved development of MOX reactor fuel, Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFC) and Solid Oxide Electrolyte Cells (SOEC), electrochemical research on bio-corrosion project, and armor brazing research for the U.S. Army Laboratory. He has operated analytical equipment for the Yucca Mountain Project, near Las Vegas, Nevada. He was a principal investigator for a laboratory directed research and development project on low-level mixed waste encapsulation using sulfur-polymer cement. He holds a bachelor’s in chemistry from Idaho State University.
