Applied nuclear science and engineering at Los Alamos
February 10, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Abstract: I will describe research at Los Alamos that is advancing our US nuclear technology capabilities. Some of the applied areas we are working on are described: stockpile stewardship, and nuclear threat reduction. Experimental and simulation work related to our LANSCE facility, and our work at Nevada, are discussed.
Bio: Mark Chadwick obtained his Ph.D. from Oxford and has had a thirty-year career at Los Alamos. He led the simulation code division (that includes the MCNP) and has led the DOE/NNSA Science Campaigns program that funds experimental work at LANL. He also leads the multi-lab US collaboration effort on cross-section evaluations for the ENDF (evaluated neutron data file) database. Chadwick is an APS Fellow and a Los Alamos Laboratory Fellow.
