Tristructural isotropic (TRISO) particle fuel has long been used in high-temperature gas-cooled nuclear reactors, but it is seeing a resurgence as a result of other applications. Read more
TRi-structural ISOtropic particle fuel — or TRISO, for short — is a type of micro fuel particle, quite possibly the most robust type of nuclear fuel.
Tristructural isotropic (TRISO) coated particle fuel is a robust, microencapsulated fuel form developed originally for use in
high-temperature gas-cooled reactors (HTGRs).
