Abstract: This project is focused on the application of scintillation detectors to investigate and characterize a dual-purpose canister.
Abstract: This project involves the construction of computational tools and methods for detector output, with a focus on neutron spectrum unfolding. These unfolding algorithms are in important tool for translating observed detector output to a neutron flux, which is typically the quantity of interest.
Abstract: This project involves developing a light intensity measuring circuit to detect the clouding of plastic scintillator gamma detectors from a radiation portal monitor (RPM) after being subjected to moisture and/or temperature environments. The circuit will ultimately alert the RPM operator to change the scintillator detector after certain degree of degradation.
Abstract: On January 16, 2016 the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was implemented between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the E3/EU+3 (China, France, Germany, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom and the United States, with the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy). The JCPOA aims to ensure […]
Abstract: One of the greatest threats to world peace and security is the prospect of nuclear weapons in the wrong hands. Although the likelihood of a large-scale military conflict with nuclear weapons seemingly decreased with the end of the cold war, the threat posed by nuclear proliferation continues to persist. Indeed, nuclear proliferation […]
