Looking Inside a Nuclear Fuel Pin to Improve Nuclear Energy

Missouri University of Science and Technology

Researchers must develop new methods to investigate nuclear fuel’s structural, thermodynamic and chemical characteristics. An S&T researcher has developed a mobile platform the size of a microwave that can see through and image the spent nuclear fuel using gamma radiation.

Statement By Jefferson Lab, Brookhaven Lab And The Electron-Ion Collider Users Community On National Academy Of Sciences Electron-Ion Collider Report

Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility

The following statement is being issued by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility and Brookhaven National Laboratory—along with the Electron-Ion Collider User Group—in response to a report issued today by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine on the scientific case for a U.S.-based Electron-Ion Collider (EIC). Jefferson Lab and Brookhaven scientists are part of the vibrant community that has come together to tackle the scientific and technological challenges of designing and building a U.S.-based EIC, drawing on the expertise and existing infrastructure at the two labs.

Dry Casks Take the Heat

Sandia National Laboratories

Sandia National Laboratories researchers have built a scaled test assembly that mimics a dry cask storage container for spent nuclear fuel to study how fuel temperatures change during storage and how the fuel’s peak temperatures affect the integrity of the metal cladding surrounding the spent fuel. Regulators could use the data to help verify computer simulations that show whether nuclear power utilities are complying with regulations that specify how much heat a dry cask can safely handle.

Funding for New DOE Energy Frontier Research Center at Brookhaven Lab

Brookhaven National Laboratory

UPTON, NY—The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has announced funding for a new Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) to be led by DOE’s Brookhaven National Laboratory. The Brookhaven EFRC, named “Molten Salts in Extreme Environments,” will focus on understanding the properties of a class of materials with potential applications in energy technologies—particularly in nuclear power.

National Ignition Facility Sets New Energy Record

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s National Ignition Facility (NIF) laser system has set a new record, firing 2.15 megajoules (MJ) of energy to its target chamber – a 15 percent improvement over NIF’s design specification of 1.8 MJ, and more than 10 percent higher than the previous 1.9 MJ energy record set in March 2012. Increasing NIF’s energy limit will expand the parameter space for stockpile stewardship experiments and provide a significant boost to the pursuit of ignition.

Berkeley Lab Team Wins Data-Driven Scavenger Hunt for Simulated Nuclear Materials

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

Competing in a fictitious high-stakes scenario, a group of scientists at Berkeley Lab bested two dozen other teams in a months-long, data-driven scavenger hunt for simulated radioactive materials in a virtual urban environment. The goal of this event was both to improve the detection methods that could be applied to actual threats involving nuclear materials, and to create a platform to virtually vet out these methods.
