Nuclear Data from Baghdad to Berkeley – Playing with the BAND

April 14, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Abstract: Atomic nuclei are the highest energy density, practically-accessible systems at humanity’s disposal.  This unparalleled energy density allows for the development of unique technological tools to address the health, energy and national/international security challenges of the 21st century provided that we have a good knowledge of nuclear reaction and decay data they require. However, the complex nature of the nuclear many-body problem makes it impossible for us to predict nuclear data accurately enough to optimize the design of these nuclear…

A Study of Nu-bar: Neutral Particles Emitted from Fission

April 16, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Abstract: In the 1950’s Cowan and Reines first detected the antineutrino by using a cadmium-doped liquid scintillator detector to measure the prompt positron and delayed neutron signature. Following this discovery, nuclear physicists used the same experimental technique to expand their understanding of neutron emission from inelastic neutron interactions on actinides. This seminar will focus on the interplay between experimental techniques used for antineutrino detection and fission neutron studies by highlighting experiments conducted at LLNL. Despite the different objectives of these…

Nuclear Science for National Security Applications

April 20, 2020 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Abstract: While the probability of nuclear exchange may be low, the consequences are undeniably grave. My research focuses on methods to improve nuclear security and nonproliferation while advancing technically-sound policies. Via a series of vignettes, I discuss the three main themes of my research—policy-relevant inquiry, data analytics, and applied nuclear physics. First, the planned deployment of new types of nuclear warheads raises questions concerning whether these capabilities alter the threshold for nuclear use—questions that lack the observational data needed to…

Closing the Gap; from Fundamental Nuclear Physics to Applications with Next-Generation Ion Traps

April 23, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am

Abstract: Ion traps have long been recognized as superb precision tools for fundamental physics research (Nobel Prize, 1989). In contemporary nuclear physics, they are widely employed to prepare, control and study short-lived radionuclides with high precision and accuracy. Recently, electrostatic ion beam traps have gained in importance by their use as Multi-Reflection Time-of-Fight (MR-ToF) mass separators. In these instruments, ions bounce back and forth between two electrostatic mirrors. Thus, a flight path of a few kilometers is folded into a…

Fukushima Daiichi Reflection

March 11 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm
3119 Etcheverry Hall Berkeley, CA 94720 + Google Map

Photo Credit to Sarah Stevenson Eleven years have passed since the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Station. The decommissioning of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plants has been progressing steadily. Professor Toru Obara's lecture will feature the current status of decommissioning. In addition, an introduction to the Nuclear Innovator Cultivation Program (NICP), an educational program launched at Tokyo Institute of Technology, will be given. Japanese photojournalist Kazuma Obara will give a talk of individual stories of the local…
