Kaleidos: Making Nuclear Power Portable at Radiant Nuclear

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

Dr. Benjamin R. Betzler Head of Nuclear Engineering at Radiant Increased industry development of nuclear microreactors over the last several years is largely due to their portability and operational flexibility,

Next-generation neutrino detection with Eos

3110 Etcheverry Hall 3110 Etcheverry Hall, Berkeley, CA, United States

Professor Gabriel O. Gann Associate professor of physics, UC Berkeley and Faculty scientist, LBNL Abstract:Neutrinos are some of the most fascinating particles that occur in nature. Over one billion times lighter than the proton, the neutrino was once thought to be massless and to travel at the speed of light. This talk will discuss the

Coal-to-Nuclear Repowering for a Just Transition

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

Jessica Lovering Executive Director, Good Energy Collective Abstract: This talk will focus on the intersection between policies to decarbonize our energy system and efforts to ensure a just transition for fossil-fuel workers and dependent communities. One opportunity that has emerged is the potential to repower retiring coal power plants with small, modular nuclear reactors. Such

Need for Speed in Scintillation Detectors

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

Dennis R. Schaart, PhD Head, Medical Physics & Technology Delft University of Technology Remarkable progress is being made in the development of ultrafast scintillation detectors, driven by the need for detectors with better time resolution and/or higher count rate capability in medical imaging and other applications. This talk aims to provide a brief overview of

Boiling Heat Transfer Experimental Research at MIT: Accomplishments, Open Questions, and Future Directions

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

Dr. Matteo Bucci Associate Professor of Nuclear Science and Engineering, MIT   Abstract In every field of science, the possibility of discovering and understanding new phenomena, or testing new hypotheses, is strongly related to and limited by the capability of observation. Here, we will discuss recent advances in experimental boiling heat transfer research made possible
