“Soft X-ray Radiation Investigations of Materials Relevant to Actinide Science” by Dr. David K. Shuh

September 3, 2017 | 3:00 pm  | MMC Campus | SIPA Room 220 Soft X-ray synchrotron radiation methodologies are being developed and employed at the Advanced Light Source (ALS) of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to elucidate the electronic structure of actinide materials. Results from these investigations have begun to provide improved fundamental knowledge that can be used as a scientific basis for the enhanced design of special-purpose actinide materials and the overall understanding…

FP&L Distinguished Nuclear Lecture Series: “The Liquid Sampling-Atmospheric Pressure Glow Discharge (LS-APGD): A Practical Microplasma for Diverse Analytical Challenges” by Dr. R. Kenneth Marcus

February 27, 2015 | 3:00 PM | School of International & Public Affairs Building (SIPA) | Room 220 RSVP To This Event Across all of the fields of analytical chemistry, atomic spectrometry (elemental analysis) is the least evolved in terms of miniaturization and transportability. Simply put, the mainstay inductively-coupled plasma (ICP) source requires too much operational overhead. This laboratory is developing the liquid sampling-atmospheric pressure glow discharge (LS-APGD) microplasma for…

FP&L Distinguished Nuclear Lecture Series: “Advances in Chemical Separations Processing in the Nuclear Fuel Cycle” by Dr. Mikael Nilsson

January 30, 2015 | 3:00 PM | School of International & Public Affairs Building (SIPA) | Room 220 RSVP To This Event Advanced fuel cycles all over the world rely on successful chemical separation of various elements in used nuclear fuel. Numerous solvent extraction processes have been developed and new systems are still being tested for recovery and purification of metal ions from this material. Classic molecular interaction is often…
