Coupling a Boltzmann plasma and BCA surface for the kinetic treatment of plasma-material interactions (2017-07-20)A near-wall plasma and material surface form a volatile region involving surface erosion, impurity ionization, and redeposition, creating a far-from-equilibrium system of mutually interacting plasma and impurity species. ...
Large-scale molecular dynamics investigations of ion-induced compositional dynamics leading to nanopattern formation at semiconductor surfaces (2017-07-19)Ion beam nanopatterning has been demonstrated to be a versatile method for obtaining a wide variety of surface features on a broad range of materials, with structures such as ripples, quantum dots, terraces, and ordered ...
Characterization of pressurized wash for decontamination of porous building materials and a Goldsim model for recycling contaminated wash (2017-07-20)The probability of a terrorist attack with a Radiological Dispersion Device (RDD) is unknown, response and recovery plans must be created beforehand to minimize the detrimental economic, social, and psychological effects ...
Simultaneous fast and slow neutron detection with superheated droplet detector and real-time readout system (2017-05-05)Alternative slow neutron detection technologies are desired in response to needs by homeland security and radiation safety. Superheated droplet detectors (SDD) have the potential to be used in both situations because they ...
Study of microstructure evolution in F/M steel T91 by in-situ synchrotron wide-angle X-rays scattering (2017-04-27)T91 ferritic-martensitic (F/M) steel is one of the leading candidates for high temperature structural materials in advanced nuclear power applications. In situ Wide-angle X-ray Scattering (WAXS) was used to investigate T91 ...
