(2019-04-17)From preventing the threat of nuclear weapons proliferation to monitoring the transportation of special nuclear materials, nuclear radiation detection plays an important role in national security applications. However, ...
Effects of porosity on surface chemistry, wetting, and percolation in porous tungsten, liquid lithium hybrid plasma facing component system (2019-04-26)Tungsten continues to be the material of choice for plasma facing components (PFC) in the divertor region of future plasma-burning fusion nuclear devices due to favorable properties such as high melting point, high thermal ...
(2019-04-25)HIDRA, the Hybrid Illinois Device for Research and Applications, is a newly acquired fusion device by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. It is an l = 2 machine with a five-fold toroidal symmetry, that was ...
Penalized maximum likelihood method for reducing limited-angle artifacts in image reconstructions for a dual-panel high-spatial-resolution pet system (2019-04-23)Whole-body positron emission tomography (PET) system has limited spatial resolution for imaging human head and neck cancer (HNC) due to the small size of lymph nodes. We are developing a dual-panel high-spatial-resolution ...
(2019-04-17)Efficiently monitoring a geographic region's radiation level and detecting anomalous radiation sources is an essential issue in homeland security. This task includes identifying illicit movement of special nuclear material, ...
