Separation Hafnium Expansion

Zirconium and hafnium separation at Y 12 When then Captain Hyman G Rickover completed his nuclear reactor training at the Clinton Laboratories in 1947 he quickly saw the advantage of using highly enriched uranium reactors in ships That was when it was first realized that there was a need to separate hafnium from zirconium for pure zirconium
