Isotope Production: Occupation and/or Adventure

SPEAKER: Etienne Vermeulen DATE/TIME: MON, 11/09/2020 - 4:00PM TO 5:00PM Fall 2020 Colloquium Series Abstract: Radioisotope production is a fascinating field of study that encompasses multiple disciplines, ranging from nuclear physics and chemistry to nuclear engineering and medical science. Users of isotope include fields as diverse diagnostic and therapeutic medicine, nuclear forensics, geochronology, antimatter research,  cosmology, and

Complex Oxides in the Nuclear Fuel Cycle – New Activities at UC Irvine

SPEAKER: Sarah Finkeldei Assistant Professor Department of Chemistry and Materials Science and Engineering at UCI DATE/TIME: MON, 11/16/2020 - 4:00PM TO 5:00PM Fall 2020 Colloquium Series Abstract: Complex oxides with fluorite derived structures play a key role in the nuclear fuel cycle context. We enhance wet-chemical synthesis routes, e.g. co-precipitation or internal gelation, to fabricate tailor-made precursors

A Nexus in Radiation Dosimetry: Convergence and Divergence in Radiation Protection, Nuclear Medicine, and Nuclear Security

SPEAKER: Shaheen Dewji DATE/TIME: MON, 11/23/2020 - 4:00PM TO 5:00PM Fall 2020 Colloquium Series In recent decades, the role of computational dosimetry has emerged in support of radiation protection regulation in occupational and medical exposures of workers, members of the public, environmental management, and nuclear medicine patients. Dosimetric approaches in radiation protection and nuclear medicine have evolved

Personalized Cancer Radiotherapy Through In Vivo Sensing

Abstract:  We will discuss how to personalize cancer therapy through the development of new integrated circuit-based platforms for detecting both the delivery of charged particle therapy (CPT).   Real-time in vivo dosimetry - at the single particle level - holds the key to unlocking the power of personalized theranostics with both 𝛼 and β particles

NuScale Power – A Scalable Clean Energy Solution

Recent studies show that the addition of Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) to the renewable energy mix offers the least cost path to achieving clean energy mandates. NuScale Power has developed and received NRC approval for its SMR technology with customers seeking to deploy the technology within this decade. The potential for hydrogen production as part
