Dr Götz Ruprecht
nuclear reactor researcher, Institute for Solid-State Nuclear Physics Berlin gGmbH

Since 2011, Götz Ruprecht has worked at the Institute for Solid-State Nuclear Physic in Berlin with a focus on reactor development. He is co-inventor of the Dual Fluid Reactor (DFR), a novel environmentally friendly nuclear reactor concept for cost-efficient electricity and fuel production with no need for geological waste storage. Since 2016, he has been a research associate at the Technical University Munich for the NuDest project, a method for nuclear waste separation related to the DFR.

Earlier in his career, Götz was a leading contributor to the TACTIC project, a novel detector for the tracking of ions emitted by nuclear reactions, including a research period at University of Notre Dame, Indiana, USA, for extensive testing of the new detector.
