Several TAMU nuclear engineering juniors visited Oak Ridge National Laboratory’s Safeguards Laboratory during the week of May 26-29, 2009 for Nuclear Material Safeguards Nondestructive Assay Techniques education and practical training, hosted by the Nuclear Security Science and Policy Institute(NSSPI). Students learned about applied nondestructive assay measurement techniques in nuclear material safeguards, discussed nonproliferation issues with NSSPI and ORNL staff, and gained first-hand experience in measuring special nuclear material using state-of-the-art technologies. In addition, students visited unique ORNL facilities such as the Spallation Neutron Source, the X-10 Graphite Reactor, and Canberra’s high-purity germanium crystal growing facility. The group was accompanied by Dr. John Poston and NSSPI staff members D. Grant Ford and Claudio Gariazzo.
