    The supercritical CO2 (S-CO2) Brayton cycle has recently been gaining a lot of attention for application to next generation nuclear reactors. The advantages of the S-CO2 cycle are high efficiency. Brayton-cycle sCO2 power systems have the potential to increase the efficiency of stationary power generation from % to above 50%. However a critical bottleneck in the commercialization of this new power system technology is the lack of compatible large-scale and cost-effective heat exchangers, which are critical components responsible for transferring heat between the sCO2 streams and.
