... In contrast, the technology development gaps for the lower maturity advanced reactor technologies are related to the viability and performance confirmation of key reactor features -- for example, materials compatibility and corrosion behavior in a radiation field; demonstration of materials to show strength, corrosion resistance, and irradiation stability during operation; demonstration of tritium mitigation by control and monitoring; and integral performance of passive safety systems. The following sections provide a few specific examples where further technology development is required for particular reactor designs.
