(2015-07-23)In this work, we will evaluate a novel design of the second-generation MRI compatible SPECT system, MRC-SPECT-II, based on an inverted compound eye (ICE) gamma camera concept inspired by compound eyes often found in small ...
Advanced characterizations of austenitic oxide dispersion-strengthened (ODS) steels for high-temperature reactor applications (2015-07-10)Future advanced nuclear systems involve higher operation temperatures, intenser neutron flux, and more aggressive coolants, calling for structural materials with excellent performances in multiple aspects. Embedded with ...
(2005)Electron irradiation damage analysis has revealed that: (1) Damage mechanism is different from carbon nanotubes; no radiation induced amorphization was observed, (2) irradiation response of BN nanotubes to 200 keV electrons ...
Research on Edge Ionization and Star Mode Discharge Physics in Inertial Electrostatic Confinement Neutron/proton Sources (2001)The end result of the research program was a development of the first steady-state discharge treatment of the IEC Star Mode incorporating the new physics understandings unearthed over the last eight years. Experimental ...
(2000)The second set of experiments performed in this thesis is designed to apply the disorder-induced melting concept to an existing fracture problem: segregation-induced intergranular embrittlement. This is accomplished in the ...
