The Essential Role of Universities in Advanced Reactor Deployment

Via Zoom

Abstract: Many University TRTRs were shut down in the 1980s & 1990s as student enrollments waned. In the 2000s, student enrollment in nuclear engineering and enthusiasm for carbon-free nuclear energy has rebounded mightily, but no new university TRTRs have been built in nearly 30 years. Simultaneous with this widening gap in hands-on training, unprecedented federal

Chemical and Electrochemical Studies in Molten Fluoride Salts

Molten fluoride salts are ionic liquids that are employed in nuclear reactors as coolant or nuclear fuel solvents. 2LiF-BeF2 (FLiBe) is an ionic liquid that is of particular interest for application in nuclear reactors due to its neutronic properties. While the fluoride salts are ionic liquids, the beryllium constituent is known to form partly covalent

Design and Development of High Spatial Resolution Positron Emission Tomography (PET) Systems

PET imaging employs positron-emitting radionuclides to visualize and quantify the biology and chemistry of disease in living subjects.  There has been great interest to enhance the spatial resolution of PET imaging to be able to detect subtle signatures of disease, which can enable earlier disease detection and more sensitive monitoring of therapeutic strategies. PET imaging
