His experience with fast-reactors and associated fuel recycling is not just theoretical; early in his career he was the Director of the EBR-II Division where he was responsible for day-to-day operation of the reactor and conduct of its experimental programs.
He is known as an originator of the “inherently safe” approach to reactor design, a concept demonstrated in landmark tests at EBR-II in 1986. These tests changed the approach to reactor safety worldwide and are the cornerstone of the ARC reactor design. For this work he received considerable recognition, including the Walker Cissler Award, an international award for achievements in fast-reactor design and an American Nuclear Society special award for his contributions to reactor safety. He is widely published and has received many other awards for his work.
Dr. Sackett received his BS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Idaho and his PhD in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Arizona.

His experience is both hands-on and analytic. He led the development of fuels and materials for fast reactors over a 34-year career, concentrating on metal fuel, which is the fuel of choice for the ARC reactor. Its development involved many innovations, which were then proven in irradiation testing of the EBR-II. Perhaps his most important achievement was the successful design of plutonium-bearing metal fuel and later the inclusion of minor actinides. In the course of this work, Dr. Walters has led the design and construction of three first-of-a-kind fuel fabrication facilities. Later in his career, he turned his attention to hydrogen production using nuclear power and preservation of the fast-reactor knowledge base.
