Abstractnanocrsytalline tunbsten has the potential to meet or exceed the performance of depleted uranium. unfortunately, no current scalable, domestic source exists for the production of 10-40nm tunsten powders that can be consolidated into nanocrystalline tungsten. I this program Powdermet, a world leader in engineered refractory metal powder technology, will develop carbonyl synthesis and oxide fast reduction techniques to produce spherical, nano-sized tungsten powders.
