The EDDE team enjoyed this opportunity to communicate the Center’s mission:  Gain a better understanding of radiation damage formation and evolution in its early stages in order to design materials that can intrinsically recover from the damaged state. The EDDE podcast aims to enthusiastically share the Team’s work - which will ultimately lead to cleaner, safer energy production. Just as the team recognizes that a career change to radio broadcasting or the music industry may seem remote, so at one time, did EDDE’s ability to design “self-healing” materials!
