Benoit Queylat is a post-doctoral researcher at the Engineering Physics Department at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. He obtained his PhD in Materials Sciences from Université Paris-Saclay, France. His research focused on understanding the evolution of the hydrogen pickup fraction of M5Framatome (Zr-1Nb) when corroded in PWR conditions. He investigated both the effect of irradiation and the niobium content on the hydrogen absorption of this alloy. Combination of SIMS and APT analyses leaded him to suggest an evolving hydrogen pickup mechanism for M5Framatome. Now, Dr Queylat focuses his researches on developing a way to monitor the evolution irradiation defects in zirconia by in situ (in autoclave) Raman spectroscopy. He also works on developing computer learning to predict high entropy alloy swelling under irradiation.
