Nuclear Engineering Opportunities at Los Alamos National Laboratory

3105 Etcheverry Hall 3105 Etcheverry Hall, Berkeley, CA, United States

IN-PERSON ONLY Dr. John Sarrao Deputy Director Los Alamos National Laboratory Los Alamos' partnership with UC Berkeley pre-dates the start of the Manhattan Project and continues robustly today. Nevertheless, the National Labs in general, and Los Alamos in particular, are relatively unknown to many students (and faculty) in academia. This presentation provides an overview of

Daniele Filippetto Staff scientist Advanced Technology and Applied Physics Division, LBNL Electron beams are powerful tools for scientific and industrial applications. Owing to their short wavelength, electrons have seen broad use in advanced instrumentation, enabling X-ray generation, real-space imaging at sub-atomic scales, enhanced resolution in nano-fabrication, high precision mechanical machining and cancer treatment to name

Decision Making, Communication, and Risk: the Public Opinion Equation

Via Zoom

Jean-Pierre Beaudoin What is a good decision? How is that judgment made? What role does  Public Opinion  play? All these questions refer to notions that vary with time, context and culture of the population concerned. Who is the Public?  Public opinion is a generational phenomenon. It takes on average 25 years for the underlying values

Coherent control in intense laser matter interactions via polarization manipulation

Via Zoom

Franklin Dollar Associate Dean of Graduate Studies, School of Physical Sciences; Associate Professor, Department of Physics & Astronomy; University of California, Irvine High intensity laser matter interactions with short pulse durations are the epitome of extreme science, at ultrafast timescales, extremely high energy densities, and relativistic effects defining the regime. In this talk, I will

The Evolving Nuclear Fuel Cycle – Challenges and Opportunities

3105 Etcheverry Hall 3105 Etcheverry Hall, Berkeley, CA, United States

Dr. Monica C. Regalbuto Idaho National Laboratory Director, Integrated Fuel Cycle Strategy The United States is pursuing an aggressive plan to combat climate change by reducing carbon emissions in which nuclear power is set to play a vital role. Accelerated development of advanced reactor designs introduce evolving nuclear fuel cycles that deviates from the commercially
